Independent Presbyterian Church
As many of you already know, our Birmingham Museum of Art has had the privilege of hosting a very special exhibition of 11 important drawings and the Codex on the Flight of Birds by Leonardo da Vinci. The very first time this collection has ever left the Biblioteca Reale in Turin made this exhibit a must see. Today we say, "Arriverderci Leonardo". He will leave us and go to San Francisco , then home to Turin, Italy. As is typical for an exhibit of this importance, we have seen a wonderful turnout the entire time, but the last weekend we had visitors willing to stand in line for almost 2 hours to spend a few minutes with the master's work. I consider myself fortunate to have been able to volunteer my time and actually work inside the exhibit itself. I never tired of looking at his exquisite drawings. I am looking forward to seeing "The Virgin of the Rocks" at the Louvre after gazing at his magnificent sketch of the angel here. I spent my SATURDAY as the cheerful greeter reassuring all these visitors that the wait really WAS worth it!
My SUNDAY morning will be spent at my church, Independent Presbyterian Church. I took this photo the other night and am pretty proud that I captured it without a tripod. Team Minneapolis, thanks for all your tips and encouragement. Mitch, how are my "skills"!
