SARASOTA, FL – The Arts and Cultural Alliance of Sarasota County invites the public to attend a special performance of “Discover DaVinci & Michelangelo: Side by Side.” The popular show is returning once again to the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall, 777 North Tamiami Trail, Sarasota, FL 34236, this time to benefit the Arts and Cultural Alliance. By using the code “Alliance” a portion of the ticket sales will go to the Arts and Cultural Alliance to fund their programming throughout the community.
Mark Rodgers, Curator of the DaVinci Machines and Michelangelo Exhibitions from the permanent Museum of Leonardo DaVinci in Florence, Italy, will take you on a fantastic, awe-inspiring journey through the Italian Renaissance as seen through the eyes of these two, monumental geniuses. This original theater performance is a non-stop, multi-media event featuring movies, videos, 3-D animations, and images of DaVinci and Michelangelos’ inventions, machines, sketches, codices, paintings, and sculptures. Rodgers compares and contrasts the incredible lives of Leonardo and Michelangelo as never before, relating them to the world that we live in today as we strive to discover our own “inner” Michelangelo and DaVinci.
