Discovery Channel Discovers San Diego Air & Space Museum - Highlights Doing DaVinci Six-Part Series by Partnering with Museum
San Diego, 6.03.2009
Enormous, full-size Leonardo da Vinci recreations from the popular Discovery Channel Show, Doing DaVinci, joined the San Diego Air & Space Museum's exhibition, The Da Vinci Experience this week.
"We truly appreciate the Discovery Channel's partnership" said Jim Kidrick, Air & Space Museum President. "What they've given to us permanently are one-of-a-kind da Vinci recreations - no one has ever built and tested, full-size, his designs before. They add significantly to our already world-class exhibit experience... we're very fortunate they considered us, for our local community and for those visiting from around the world."
Arranged into three categories - transportation, military, and mechanical - the interactive models in The Da Vinci Experience are complemented by reproductions of twelve of da Vinci's most famous paintings. They show how, for a Renaissance artist, the arts and sciences were intricately connected.
Doing DaVinci airs Monday nights at 10PM on the Discovery Channel. http://dsc.discovery.com/tv/doing-davinci/doing-davinci.html
