After a seven month run in downtown Denver, the DaVinci Machines Exhibition is ready to move to Golden onto the campus of the Colorado School of Mines! We are proposing to create two exhibitions on the Mines campus: The Art of Innovation: DaVinci and Michelangelo and Machines of Change: The DaVinci Machines. These exhibitions are free and open to the public, and will allow Mines students and visitors to explore attributes of DaVinci that resonate to a modern entrepreneur.
Together, these exhibitions will provide tremendous insight into the innovation process and create an understanding of DaVinci as a 15th century technical entrepreneur! Join us to create a stunning visual portrayal of the innovation process as it was originally developed almost 500 years ago! Explore the vision and process of one of the world’s most recognized inventor and artist, and understand the contrasting approaches developed by Michelangelo and DaVinci.
The Art of Innovation Exhibit will take place in the Arthur Lakes Library, where over 30 high-resolution digital reproductions will be on display throughout the main level of the library. Viewers will be able to listen to an audio self-guided tour to learn about DaVinci’s entrepreneurial spirit and application of innovative techniques in the creation of these masterpieces. Full-size reproductions of the Mona Lisa, Last Supper and other classics will be on display along with a special collection of a dozen high-resolution prints of Michelangelo’s paintings on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel in the Vatican.
BE A PART OF THE EXHIBIT
We are seeking to raise $25,000 to move and set up this beautiful exhibition at Mines at the beginning of January.

The DaVinci Machines Exhibition displaying hand-crafted inventions built from Leonardo’s 500 year old designs brought to life the creations by the brilliant scientist, inventor and artist Leonardo Da Vinci as well as his Masterpieces digitally remastered for an up close and personal look at the greatest genius of all time. The Magnificent Machines on display, many of which are interactive, features replicas of the major and most striking inventions of the original Renaissance Man. The main features on display include the “bicycle”, “spring powered car”, “hang glider” and the “air screw”, a precursor to the helicopter and for the first time ever, the secrets behind Leonardo’s legendary robotic lion. This exhibition presents models grouped in themes: War machines, Flying machines, Nautical & Hydraulic machines, as well as devices illustrating the Principles of Mechanics. The interactive machines are a popular aspect of each exhibition as visitors can touch and handle these models to gain a firsthand appreciation of how they work. Explanatory notes and illustrative panels with Leonardo’s drawings accompany each model.
