An exhibit realized out of one of the greatest minds of all time, Leonardo da Vinci, launched with an opening reception allowing visitors an exclusive look into a dynamic interactive experience

Last Friday, February 2nd, felt like stepping into a time machine and landing straight into the Renaissance era, all thanks to the launch of the Da Vinci Machines & Robotics Exhibition. This marvel was brought to life in the heart of Downtown Miami, inside the historic walls of the Security Building, offering an evening that felt both elegant and incredibly immersive.

John Copeland, the Director of Arts & Culture Tourism for the Greater Miami Convention & Visitors Bureau, couldn't have put it better when he said, "Leonardo Da Vinci was dramatic, futuristic, inventive… It's only fitting that The Da Vinci Machines & Robotics exhibit finds a home in Miami." He highlighted how the exhibit aligns perfectly with Miami's reputation for innovative and creative experiences, adding a unique dimension to the city's diverse museum and exhibit offerings.

The venue itself, Miami's Security Building, couldn't have been more perfect. Its historical charm added an extra layer of magic to the night, perfectly complementing da Vinci's masterpieces. The exhibition is a treasure trove of over sixty pieces, including some of Leonardo's most groundbreaking inventions and life-size reproductions of his famous paintings. It's an interactive adventure, allowing visitors to truly engage with the genius of da Vinci.

Tom Rizzo, the exhibit's curator and an apprentice with the Artisans of Florence, shared an intriguing insight: "Many of Leonardo's designs never made it past the concept stage during his lifetime." But here, they've brought his blueprints to life, using the very materials and tools da Vinci would have used, proving just how ahead of his time he really was.

It's fascinating to think about how da Vinci's work, especially in robotics, has influenced the modern world. Now, with this exhibition, guests have the unique opportunity to explore over 60 of these inventions, all meticulously handcrafted by Florentine artisans based on Leonardo's detailed plans.

Open until March 24th, 2024, the exhibition welcomes visitors to dive deep into the legacy of Leonardo da Vinci, Tuesday through Sunday, from 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. With tickets starting at $28 and special rates for students, military personnel, seniors, and children, there's an invitation for everyone to come and witness the marvels of one of history's greatest minds.

"We invite everyone to join us in exploring the legacy of Leonardo da Vinci and experience the wonders of his inventions," said Josephine Bodogh, President of JB Contemporary, and who brought this extraordinary exhibit to Miami. "This exhibition promises to be a highlight for South Florida which shows Da Vinci’s most stunning creations while offering a truly captivating and educational experience for all
