The Genius of Leonardo: Machines in Motion 

Making its United States debut at the Witte Museum, this exhibit takes visitors into the magical world of Leonardo Da Vinci's mastermind machines, built from his original drawings.

The exhibition is a spectacle in which knowledge and entertainment are entwined. Like a theatrical performance, the materials artfully take on a life of their own. Sound, light and shade mingle, all evoking Da Vinci’s past and our present. Our aim is to reveal the pulse of power, genius, and instinct; and the soul’s secret perceptions.

From the moment of entry to departure, each visitor will carve a line through space as if in a rite, an abstract motion that leads to Da Vinci and the complex edifice of his thought. As visitors, we may take part interactively in order to grasp and enjoy the source of the inventor’s inspiration. Here, the mind is activated, and our thoughts travel along with the genius of Leonardo Da Vinci.

The exhibit runs June 21 - September 7, 2008
