Leonardo da Vinci is one of the most intriguing men in history—an ordinary man who did extraordinary things. He was, at once, an accomplished artist, designer, engineer, philosopher and scientist—in short, he was the very embodiment of what we now think of as a Renaissance Man.
The Da Vinci Museum Exhibit will feature displays of 64 full-sized machines designed and described by Da Vinci, reproductions of 20 of his most famous works of art, and an activities area filled with more than 30 original games and crafts.
The exhibit will be open from January 15 to December 31, 2011 at the Hollywood & Highland Center (6801 Hollywood Blvd., Hollywood, CA 90028), immediately across from the Kokak Theatre.
The Da Vinci Exhibit includes 10,000 square feet devoted to this remarkable man’s inventions and artwork that were long before their time. Adults and children can actually crank, pull, push and turn many of the machines to see how they work. There are three galleries devoted to Da Vinci’s best known artworks, including two that explore the Mona Lisa and The Last Supper in depth. An original award-winning film about Leonardo’s life introduces and orients visitors to the displays. There is, in addition, a Gift Store with hundreds of decorative, informative, and entertaining items on sale.
