Leonardo da Vinci: A Celebration of Wonder, Imagination, and the Creative Power of Curiosity

Extraordinarily talented and relentlessly curious, Leonardo not only produced some of the world’s most beautiful and iconic works of art, but also conducted extensive and prescient scientific explorations that inspire awe even today. We probe Leonardo’s biography and the specific aspects of 15th century Florence that allowed him to flourish. We look closely at both his most important artistic creations — such as the Mona Lisa and the Last Supper — and his most stunning scientific works – from hydraulics and war machines to his remarkable and timeless renderings of the human body. We even try our own hands and minds at some creative explorations inspired by his, and in doing so, take a fresh look at the power of curiosity in our own lives and times.
