Acclaimed author Michael J. Gelb will be the first speaker in a new lecture series being launched by the New Mexico Museum of Natural History & Science, entitled “The Brain: It’s More Than You Think.” Gelb will speak July 26, three days before the current blockbuster exhibition Da Vinci—The Genius closes on July 29, and, in anticipation of two planned exhibitions coming in 2019. Coming in February 2019, the NMMNHS will host an exhibition from the DEA Museum called “Drugs: Costs and Consequences” as well as another traveling exhibit on what we know about the human brain.
Two programs will be held at the museum and DynaTheater. The cost of admission for the luncheon is $50, that includes lunch in the Community Gallery of the Museum from 12 p.m. – 1:30 p.m., remarks by the author, a signed copy of Gelb’s book How to Think like Leonardo Da Vinci, and same-day, non-transferable admission to Da Vinci—The Genius exhibition afterwards.
A cocktail hour and lecture is scheduled for the same day (July 26) at a separate cost. This $55 ticket will include a 5:30PM cocktail/appetizer reception with remarks by the author, a lecture, a signed copy of Michael Gelb’s book How to Think like Leonardo Da Vinci, and non-transferable passes to visit the “DaVinci, The Genius” exhibition once over its last three days.
