Da Vinci After Dark (Adult-Only)
March 28 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
To celebrate the 500th anniversary of Leonardo Da Vinci’s death, a new adults-only program, “Da Vinci After Dark” will be held March 28 from 7 to 10 p.m. Participants can try their hand in trivia as well as try to re-create and improve some of Da Vinci’s famous designs. Admission is $35, or $30 for museum members. Pre-registration is required and closes March 24.
“Visitors will get the chance to express their inner inventor,” said Florida Museum educator Tiffany Ireland. “Da Vinci was commissioned by multiple families and governments to invent bigger and better inventions, and some were not feasible then but are now! Visitors can use their modern knowledge to improve these inventions in the Da Vinci Dares event.”
SciArt meetups, offered in partnership with Santa Fe Art Gallery and Wayfaring Painter, will be held monthly this spring. Each meetup includes brief presentations by a guest artist or scientist on the featured topic. The first meetup is scheduled for March 24 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
