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 Winter 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!

SM&NC Members: Free | Non-Members: included with gate admission.

The Stamford Museum galleries are open Monday-Saturday, 9 am-5 pm; Sunday 11 am-5 pm.

Gerbo-matic Workshop: Make-and-Take Sculpting Event
Saturday, January 20, 2018; two sessions
Sculptor Steven Gerberich will inspire and direct participants to sculpt their own mini-masterpieces from a smorgasbord of parts painstakingly culled from dumpsters, thrift shops, and dollar stores during Gerberich's nationwide travels. Handmade sculptures will be assembled using hot glue "welding." Children and adults can re-compose these objects into original works, while acquiring a new appreciation for the creative reuse of ordinary objects. Details for program sessions registration coming in December.
