Latrobe Regional Gallery at Morwell will host the exhibition Da Vinci Machines from 27 February 2021 to 25 April 2021. The event features the machines and art designed by one of the world’s greatest minds – Leonardo Da Vinci.
Iconic inventions by Da Vinci
Visitors will be in awe of the more than 60 interactive machines created from original Da Vinci drawings of iconic inventions such as:
- Flying machines
- Scuba suit
- Spring-powered car
Among Da Vinci’s innovations are fear-inspiring machines of war like the following:
- Automatons (the precursors to robots)
- Ground-breaking applications of civil engineering
- Hydraulic and architectural tools
There will also be a set of life-size replicas of iconic Da Vinci paintings, including the famous Mona Lisa, and activities such as art lessons and inventing sessions for children, life drawing, a family fun day on Saturday 27 March and late night trading every Friday night until 8pm.
International exhibition in Latrobe
"Latrobe City Council is proud to be hosting Da Vinci Machines, an international exhibition that is now here in Morwell for the enjoyment of Latrobe City residents, and visitors from across Gippsland and even Melbourne," Latrobe City Council Mayor, Cr Sharon Gibson said.
"Da Vinci is one of the most well recognised minds in human history and his creations intrigue people from across the generations, from art lovers and makers to machine and motor enthusiasts, individuals and families. "I’m delighted that entry to the exhibition is free and there is assistance with travel to ensure as many people as possible can view this spectacular show."
The machines were made in Italy by the acclaimed Artisans of Florence in collaboration with The Niccolai Group. The exhibition is based around themes of:
- Art Gallery
- Civil Machines
- Flying Machines
- Nautical and Hydraulic Machines
- War Machines
The exhibition will be complemented by a schools program, families program and public program. Additional support from the Latrobe Valley Authority and the Department of Transport will ensure everyone can access this opportunity.
Book ahead for guaranteed entry
While entry is free, visitors are advised to book ahead to guarantee entry. Visitors are only admitted at set timeslots and the number of people attending each timeslot is limited. Visitors will need to sign in with a QR code. Book online at: Latrobe Regional Gallery.
Visitors can request a guided group tour by contacting the Gallery at least one week prior. The exhibition presents an ideal opportunity for the community to experience an event in a COVID-Safe manner, where social distancing, patron flow and other COVID-Safe requirements will be adhered to.
Council is hoping this event will draw visitors to Morwell who will stay overnight and see other attractions in the region, thereby supporting local accommodation providers and businesses.
