Leonardo da Vinci Exhibit
The City of Birmingham is lucky to have one of the best art museums in the Southeast, if not the entire country. The Birmingham Museum of Art proves this time and again with the quality of exhibits it brings to the city. From September 28 thru November 9, the museum is featuring the exhibition Leonardo da Vinci: Drawings from the Biblioteca Reale in Turin. The Birmingham Museum of Art is the first museum in the United States to exhibit this specific collection of drawings, so please take advantage of the opportunity. Before or after your visit to the museum, be sure to check out the display of books on Leonardo Da Vinci and other Italian Renaissance artists in the Arts, Literature, and Sports Department. We also have a framed print of DaVinci’s The Last Supper available for checkout.
