Springs Sprockets and Pulleys

"Common objects, made uncommon." -Charles Osgood, CBS Sunday Morning

Press a button or crank a wheel and Steve Gerberich's sculptures come to life. A flock of decoy geese overhead flap open suitcase wings. A wooden cow with hooves clad in high-top sneakers is milked endlessly by an over-enterprising farmer. This awe-inspiring show contains 30 of Gerberich's sculptures built during a 12 year span, and can be site specifically installed up to 5,000 square feet.

Quotable Quotes

"Many people in SoHo believe that the last truly modernist movement in the neighborhood is the window art of Stephen J. Gerberich..."
-Adam Gopnik, The New Yorker
"If you've ever fallen for a tag-sale knickknack, kept a broken tool, stored a useless appliance, admired an arcane invention or used the word 'cool' in front of an obsolete machine, Gerberich is your man."
-Timothy Cahill, Times Union
"When my twins were about 3 1/2 years old I drove them way out to the Morris Museum TWO times because all 3 of us were utterly wow'ed and amazed and delighted with your Springs, Spockets & Pulleys exhibit. Of all the different museums, galleries, shows, concerts, aquariums and kid-related events, I felt and still feel SS & P was the most important and meaningful outing we ever had. I called and emailed all my friends (even in Connecticut) and told them that your exhibit was an absolute must see."
-Victoria, Boerum Hill, Brooklyn
