Additional Notes:
The “Discover DaVinci & Michelangelo: The Titans Experience” original, national touring theater performance makes its Palm Beach County debut at the Mizner Park Cultural Center on Monday, March 27, 2017 for an “Opening Night” 7:30pm performance to benefit the Friends of the Uffizi Gallery.

Mark Rodgers, the renowned creator and host of the famously interactive, multi-media performance, is also the curator of the DaVinci Machines and Michelangelo Exhibitions from the permanent Museum of Leonardo DaVinci in Florence, Italy.

Rogers will take audiences on a FANTASTIC, AWE-INSPIRING journey through the Italian Renaissance as seen through the eyes of these two monumental geniuses, who were not only contemporaries, but also fierce competitors.

This non-stop, multi-media performance includes movies, 3-D animations, and images of DaVinci and Michelangelos inventions, machines, images of codices, artwork, paintings, and sculptures.

“DaVinci and Michelangelo have an outreach and following that everyone can relate to,” says Rodgers. “Everything they said and did relates to our lives today…[and] we are honored to be benefiting the Friends of the Uffizi Gallery for their dedication to the Uffizi Gallery in Florence, Italy to raise awareness of its cultural treasures and to provide resources for preservation, restoration and education of Renaissance art for future generations. DaVinci and Michelangelo would be proud for their support, forward thinking and bringing new, innovative theater, and art to the students, parents, schools, art and theater patrons of Palm Beach County,” Rodgers further explains.

Libraries and archives of all kinds are witnessing an unprecedented surge of patrons interested in conducting genealogy research, including those patrons working in inheritance law, journalism, documentary films, historical fiction and non-fiction, or personal family history research. It is imperative that reference librarians acquire some basic tools for serving the unique needs of this diverse user group. At CJH, we have a very robust genealogy program which has seen enormous growth in our patron numbers from year to year. In this session, you will learn how to conduct a genealogy reference interview (and how it is unlike most other reference interviews) and which are the key genealogy resources you should become acquainted with. This session is for librarians of all levels, from MLS students to experienced reference librarians.
