A da Vinci Goodbye

April 23, 2010

Sadly, our Curator of Special Exhibitions, Karen Lacy, is leaving us. For the past five years, she has helped bring our collections out from the basement and into the light of the galleries. Recently, she has been an integral member in the preparation and implementation of our special exhibitions. Before The Science of… Aliens moved in, Karen oversaw the construction, implementation, maintenance, etc. (you get the idea) of The Da Vinci Experience. So, we thought that the best way to say goodbye would be recreating one of da Vinci’s most famous works. She did not want to be the center of attention, so we luckily had a back up. Take a look and see if you can tell me which piece of art we have recreated.

We wish her the best at her new position at the Museum of Man and hope that she will return for a visit (She is only a ten minute, at the most, walk away).
