The Da Vinci Machines Exhibition
I will confess that I had only thought of Leonardo Da Vinci as a great painter. I had no idea that he had come up with thousands of inventions in his lifetime. It is hard to conceive that many of his ideas are utilized in things we take for granted today. The exhibit is very well done, and we were lucky to be there around the time that a guided tour was being offered. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and so enthusiastic about the exhibit. I later found out that he is the brother of one of my friends in the St. Louis Publishers Association. Small world! At any rate, I highly recommend seeing the exhibit.
