A reproduction of the Mona Lisa, arguably Leonardo Da Vinci’s most famous work, is one of the central installations in “Da Vinci—The Genius” which will run at the Mind Museum in Bonifacio Global City September 1 to November 30, 2013. The exhibit reveals the secrets of the painting known in Italian as “La Joconde,” whose original draws more than eight million people at the Louvre Museum in Paris annually.

Hear ye, hear ye, Filipino art and science enthusiasts: Leonardo Da Vinci is in town! This, as what is dubbed as the “most comprehensive” exhibit of the Italian polymath comes to Manila. “Da Vinci—The Genius” will run from September 1 to November 30, 2013 at the Mind Museum in Bonifacio Global City.

The exhibit features more than 200 works attributed to the so-called archetype of the Renaissance Man, from paintings, war and flying machines, to his codices and even his notebooks. Developed by Grande Exhibitions in Australia, it will also allow guests to “find Leonardo” through interactive experience.
