It is a world filled with mechanical marvels and fantastic wizardry. Holiday Springs and Sprockets is an exhibit with all the bells and whistles at the Muscatine Art Center.

Steve Gerberich is the mastermind behind the creations. Eight flying reindeer on exercycles, with bicycle handlebars for antlers. Rudolph wearing red, high top sneakers.

Gerberich uses license plates, coffee pots, and many, many other gadgets and gizmos to create the art.  The exhibit includes a candy cane assembly plant, a cookie workshop, and the L and S Espresso train. The motors used in the exhibit have been recycled or reclaimed.

With the touch of a button, the gears, pulleys, springs and sprockets come to life. Gerberich's work has been commissioned by Bloomingdale's in New York and also has been featured on the NBC Nightly News.

He graduated from the University of Northern Iowa in 1982 with a degree in art. He attended Waukee High School.

The exhibit runs through January 6th and admission is free. Seventy five hundred people are expected to view the exhibit at the Muscatine Art Center.
