Da Vinci in Manila: Da Vinci The Genius Exhibition at the Mind Museum
I can’t express how excited I am that one of the world’s greatest minds is coming to the Philippines! Well, not exactly him, but his works will be here, which is close enough to the real person!
There is ONLY ONE Leonardo Da Vinci.
Leonardo Da Vinci is arguably the greatest genius of all time. He was an inventor, scientist, artist, musician and architect who was consummate in his passion and his achievements. He is a most powerful example of what the human mind is capable of – vision, imagination, precision, artistry, and the combination of all these- expressed to the fullest in such elegance and poignancy.
Da Vinci’s original works are too fragile to be moved from the museums where they are permanently housed. But there is ONLY ONE Leonardo Da Vinci travelling exhibition available in the world that offers the most comprehensive look, analysis and interaction with Da Vinci’s works. Created with the assistance of Leonardo da Vinci experts in Italy and France, Da Vinci – The Genius celebrates one of the most revered and dynamic minds of all time. The interactive experience will immerse guests in Leonardo’s timeless brilliance through full-scale interpretations of the mastermind’s inventions and unparalleled studies of his iconic art. The exhibition features 13 compelling themed areas of da Vinci’s work, offering visitors an unmatched look inside the mind of the ultimate Renaissance man who laid the groundwork for some of modern society’s most impactful inventions, such as the helicopter, airplane, automobile, submarine, parachute and bicycle.
The Mind Museum will present Da Vinci – The Genius, the most comprehensive exploration of Leonardo da Vinci’s work ever created, for a limited engagement, in keeping with its commitment to offer first-rate travelling exhibitions to its guests. Experience his depth and splendor at The Mind Museum opening September 1st, 2013.
The Mind Museum’s aim is to give our guests an extraordinary experience that inspires them to understand nature. Visitors to Da Vinci – The Genius are invited to embrace the history, theory and objective behind each of da Vinci’s designs and artworks through engaging and entertaining technologies. Many exhibits are interactive and could be pushed, pulled and touched for better understanding. Other highlights include reproductions of “Virgin of the Rocks”, and “The Annunciation”, the controversial new Leonardo discovery “Bella Principessa”, amazing anatomical sketches, the preparatory drawings of the “Anghiari Battle,” and three-dimensional interactive presentations of “The Last Supper,” the “Vitruvian Man,” and the “Sforza Horse” sculpture that offer never before seen perspectives on these famous works. Guests also will enjoy a glimpse into da Vinci’s mysterious alphabet and writing techniques as they browse touch-screen versions of his actual codices.
Da Vinci – The Genius has over 200 pieces of his works from paintings, war machines, flying machines, and his notebooks to leave you breathless & inspired at what one human being can do with the power of his mind. The exhibition was developed by Grande Exhibitions Australia under the kind auspices of the Commune di Roma, Commune di Firenze and Citta Di Venezia.
Come and witness Da Vinci – The Genius at The Mind Museum. It is the world’s most comprehensive travelling exhibition on Leonardo, and the ONE and ONLY Da Vinci exhibition to see in Manila this year.
