The Leonardo and American Exhibitions, Inc. invited youth from The Boys and Girls Club of Greater Salt Lake to the Mummies of the World exhibit yesterday, April 18. The Leonardo Museum presented the tickets to LeAnn Saldivar, CEO of the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Salt Lake, with more than 80 youth members onsite to share in the occasion.
SALT LAKE CITY — The Dead Sea Scrolls will be on display in The Leonardo this fall. Wednesday, The Leonardo museum announced that they would be showcasing 20 scrolls, including the oldest known copies of the Hebrew Bible, alongside about 600 artifacts from ancient Israel. They will display only 10 scrolls at one time.
The Leonardo is known for bringing art and science together, so when Margaret Tarampi, a student at the University of Utah (U of U) working toward her Ph.D. in psychology, wanted to bring one of her classroom practices to a larger audience The Leonardo was a perfect fit.
Dylan Thurgood constantly had hands on the brain. No, he wasn’t thinking about hands. Instead, the 10-year-old literally had his glove-covered hands all over a gray, moist and slightly squishy brain.
Last week my wife and I visited the "Mummies of the World" exhibit at The Leonardo. I didn’t want to go but she insisted. The reluctance had little to do with the mummies themselves. I just hate standing in line and don’t like having to look at stuff as part of a mob, especially if the mob includes more than one bored child.
