The Leonardo Da Vinci exhibition in Millennium Galleries features a fun and interactive installation which kids love. Try it, it’s on until May 26th 2019.
The installation features four moving image across the floor: sea foam, blood cells, rushing crowds of colourful people and air flow arrows. Anyone is welcome to explore it how they like… by walking across it, laying on the floor or touching it. It’s quite fun and moves quickly.
“This new installation is a 21st century response to the artist’s ground-breaking Studies of ﬂowing water (1510-13), on display in Leonardo da Vinci: A Life in Drawing. Centuries before the advent of photography, these drawings revealed the complexity of ﬂuid movement in a way never seen before.
The Vehicle of Nature, named after Leonardo’s own description of water, brings together the latest display technologies to create a digital river, which swirls and eddies across the gallery space.” (Millennium Galleries)
We combined this with Winter Garden, Peace Gardens and Central Library. Entry is free to all of these places so it was a cheap, fun few hours in town.
Millennium Galleries just started a new Wednesday term time activity for under 5’s called Leonardo’s Little Inventors. I haven’t tried it yet but hope to before it’s too long! Plus a new all-day-cafe opened downstairs which looks very nice.
Winter Gardens is always worth a visit, one of my favourite places in Sheffield. Find out more here:
