Leonardo da Vinci was a genius, a virtuoso and a visionary. His studies, inventions and works of art created during his life from 1452 to 1519 make him the consummate Renaissance man. He drew early concepts for the car, bicycle, helicopter, glider, parachute and much more, but his legacy is best seen today in such works as the “Mona Lisa,” “The Vitruvian Man” and “The Last Supper.”

Beginning Feb. 10, New Mexicans will be able to get an up-close view of life-size, interactive representations of his designs when “Da Vinci – The Genius” opens for a five-month exhibition at the New Mexico Museum of Natural History & Science. It will run through July 29, 2018.
