Da Vinci & Michelangelo: Side by Side

On loan from the Museum of Leonardo Da Vinci in Florence, Italy, the pieces of Da Vinci & Michelangelo: Side by Side illustrate the startling genius of the two Renaissance masterminds. In the Da Vinci wing of the exhibit, guests can stroll past 60 interactive models based on the polymath's original 500-year-old concepts. Peruse replicas of major inventions, each of which was handcrafted by three generations of Florentine artisans. Check out the air screw, an early ancestor to both the helicopter and the propeller beanie, and learn the secrets behind the mechanical lion, a robotic lion given as a gift to the king of France. Youngsters and adults alike are fully encouraged to touch the war machines, flying machines, and nautical and hydraulic devices for insight into their functionality, and accompanying explanatory notes, illustrative panels, and computer programs help modern minds obtain further understanding of Da Vinci's wide-reaching genius.

Nearby, "Michelangelo" surrounds visitors with works by the inimitable Renaissance master. Considered one of history's greatest artists and competitive watermelon-seed spitters, Michelangelo boasted an unequalled command of sculpture, painting, and architecture. His most impressive works are all on display in the exhibit, including famous sculptures that appear as authentic, original cast reproductions, created by the Florence-based National Academy of Cast Making. Notable statues include the head of David, as well as the Pieta, whose depiction of Mary holding Jesus' body grips the viewer with maternal grief. Elsewhere, visitors get up close to examine the details and hidden Waldos in his famed Sistine Chapel frescos. High-quality reproductions let guests gaze at The Creation of Adam in the sort of detail known only to professional restorers.
