A painter and photographer by training, Iowa-born sculptor Steve Gerberich’s exposure to the arts came early, growing up in a close family tuned to visual humor and visual puns. Especially influential was his talented older brother, Tim, who led the creative expeditions and conceptual installations which were Steve’s first artistic explorations. Tim’s experiments in humor and human behavior through the arts later took him to Cal Arts, while Steve Gerberich’s post-college landed in NYC.
