Grande Experiences have created the most comprehensive exhibitions on Leonardo da Vinci to tour the world. Created with the assistance of the Museo Leonardo da Vinci – Rome, Italy, and a number of experts in Italy and France, the exhibition brings to life the genius of Leonardo as an inventor, artist, scientist, anatomist, engineer, architect, sculptor and philosopher.
Working from Leonardo’s codices, Italian artisans have faithfully crafted interactive and life-size machine inventions. These works include the first concepts of a car, bicycle, helicopter, glider, parachute, SCUBA, submarine, a forerunner to the modern military tank, and an ideal city, to name a few.
Generous support for Da Vinci – Inventions in Seattle is provided by the MOHAI Exhibits Fund.
Da Vinci – Inventions opens at MOHAI on May 1, 2021.
Opening at Seattle’s Museum of History & Industry (MOHAI) on May 1, 2021, the exhibit also moves far beyond machine inventions alone, featuring facsimiles of Leonardo’s most famous codices, anatomical studies, the Battle of Anghiari drawings and displays of his renaissance art in actual size.
A high definition recreation of The Last Supper (projected at actual size 8.8 x 4.6 m / 29 x 14.5 ft where possible) is an impressive display that complements the entertaining and educational animation presentations of the Vitruvian Man and one of Leonardo’s most ambitious projects – the Sforza horse sculpture.
Suitable for all ages, this amazing exhibition provides a fascinating insight into not only the mind of a genius, but also into the fundamental scientific and artistic principles that he discovered. Da Vinci – Inventions is an inspiration for the whole family.
