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.
