Da Vinci Machines Exhibition in Bradenton
Originally scheduled to return to its home at the Museum of Leonardo Da Vinci in Florence, Italy in April, the exhibition has attracted more than 15,000 guests, all seeking the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to view more than 60 hand-crafted inventions built from Da Vinci's 500-year- old designs and experience one of just three such exhibitions in the world. “The Bradenton Area has seen overwhelming interest since the exhibition opened in mid-November,” said BACVB executive manager, Debbie Meihls. “Through the exhibit extension, we are thrilled that an even greater audience will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in art history. Unique opportunities such as these help to further establish the Bradenton Area as a leading arts community in the state and beyond.” “We are excited to extend our exhibition stay in Bradenton and expand our reach into the community,” said Mark Rodgers, North America Director and Curator of the exhibition. “We are thrilled to continue to enhance the experience for visitors to the area and provide more of them a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to discover.”
The Bradenton Area Convention and Visitors Bureau is pleased to announce that the Da Vinci Machines Exhibition, which opened in mid-November at the Bradenton Municipal Auditorium has extended its stay through July 7 due to an overwhelming response from locals and visitors to the area.
