Holiday Springs & Sprockets

Port Discovery Children Museum’s newest visiting exhibit, Holiday Springs & Sprockets by renowned artist Steve Gerberich, features large-scale, holiday-themed moving mechanical sculptures, created from a variety of recycled materials, including everything from old machine parts to kitchen utensils, pieces of furniture and old toys.

Among the sites to which Holiday Springs & Sprockets visitors are treated are eight life-sized flying reindeer lifted by motor-driven exercise bicycles, a candy cane assembly plant driven by an early 20th century vertical drill press, and a fully automated cookie workshop. Visitors are able to bring the gadgets, gears and pulleys in each installation to life with the push of a button for a unique, interactive experience.
