Join us at the Cranbrook Institute of Science for a final party to celebrate the Da Vinci: Machines & Robotics exhibition, sponsored by PNC Bank. There will be a host of science experiments and activities based on the musings of the Renaissance Man himself, Leonardo da Vinci. In addition, celebrate 16th century Italian style with crafts, dancing, and games all inspired by the great flowering of culture enjoyed by Europe at the time. Make jewelry, learn a new dance, and try your hand at cards or chess – both exotic new pastimes in Renaissance Europe!
