(2008-09-04)
(APR - Alabama Public Radio ) - The Birmingham Museum of Art is preparing for an exhibit of Leonardo da Vinci drawings that will be shown later this month for the first time in the United States.

The exhibition, Leonardo da Vinci: Drawings from the Biblioteca Reale in Turin, opens September 28 and runs through Nov. 9 in Birmingham.

The works cover one of da Vinci's most celebrated notebooks, the Codex on the Flight of Birds, and 11 important drawings.

The drawings have never traveled as a group before or been made available outside of Italy in its entirety.
