V Is for Violin - Springs, Sprockets and Pulleys by Steve Gerberich

SmugMug Daily Link

The boys, Donnie, and I went to the Museum of Life and Science in Durham.  Joey just couldn't wait any longer to see Steve Gerberich's Springs, Sprockets, and Pulleys exhibit which is on display through February 23rd.  Steve has installed an exhibit at the museum many times before around the holiday, and we've had the pleasure over the years of seeing several of those too.  Here is a link to a gallery with photos of his 2009 exhibit and link to a gallery with photos from his 2011 exhibit.

My daily photo is a collage of a group of musicians.  The violin player is on the right.  I could just kick myself for not thinking V and getting a better shot of him!  However, the whole group and head shots that I got are pretty fascinating anyway.

My favorite part of the exhibit was The Time Machine.

Here's another collage showing a variety of figures from the entire exhibit.

We entered Johnny's Halloween robot costume in a contest that they have going on right now to win a workshop with Steve.  We sure hope we win.  We went to one of his paid for workshops several years ago and made interesting flying creatures that you could pull the strings and make the wings flap.  It was a lot of fun!
