8.12 DaVinci AnnouncementThings were really busy in the NASM Office of Communications my last few weeks because we were gearing up for a major announcement: for 40 days a da Vinci masterpiece will be on display at the museum. Da Vinci’s Codex on the Flight of Birds is a notebook filled with Leonardo da Vinci’s musings on the flight of winged animals and also the idea of human flight. The codex will be displayed in September and October in the Wright Brothers gallery right by the Wright flyer, the first plane and the start of a century of flight advancements.

We created a video announcement that was sent to our media list and it has gotten great pick up. I mean, how often do you get to see a da Vinci in the United States? Not often, so it’s pretty big deal. It was exciting to be here while the announcement was being brainstormed and put together. And I’m excited to come back and see the exhibit during Fall Break.
