The Stamford Nature Center and Museum located at 39 Scofieldtown Road has a new winter display that runs through February 3 that highlights Gerberich Gadgets: the Best of Springs, Sprockets, and Pulleys!
Remember those crazy contraptions that would spin, rock, and play music – and they were made from tag sale treasures and overlooked common objects?
Yes, the ingenious inventions of sculptor – and SM&NC favorite – Steve Gerberich will return to the Stamford Museum Galleries for a totally re-imagined Holiday Exhibition. Gerberich has gathered his most outstanding and outlandish large-scale kinetic sculptures and installations for a showing of the “Best of Springs, Sprockets & Pulleys.”
Working with old machine parts, kitchen utensils, furniture scraps, lighting fixtures, medical supplies, toys, and carnival figurines, Gerberich mixes the aesthetics of contemporary sculpture with the scientific principles of simple mechanical motion. It’s crazy fun!
Museum galleries are open Monday-Saturday, 9am – 5pm; Sunday 11am – 5pm.
