The Best of Springs, Sprockets & Pulleys: The Mechanical Sculptures of Steve Gerberich
Press a button or crank a wheel, and with a whirring hum, the sculptures of New York-based artist Steve Gerberich come to life! A flock of decoy geese flap overhead with open suitcase wings in this whimsical exhibit constructed from recycled and found materials. While exploring, you can spot re-purposed items such as old machine parts, kitchen utensils, lighting fixtures, toys and carnival figurines brought to life by the power of science and physics. This highly entertaining exhibit offers museum-goers a unique way to interact with contemporary sculpture and explore the principles of simple mechanical motion!
This is one science-meets-art experience you won't want to miss!
