After controversies and long delays The Leonardo will finally open its doors this weekend. Housed in what used to be Salt Lake’s main library, the Leonardo is “a contemporary Sci+Tech+Art museum, where today’s big ideas, questions, inventions and discoveries are connected in a whole new way.” After the opening date was pushed forward multiple times, a three-month installation schedule was squeezed into three weeks. Working round the clock, the Leonardo install team, led by tech wizard and beard aficionado Ben Weimeyer, has completed scores of art and tech installations on three levels. 15 Bytes was allowed in to get us a sneak peak at what you’ll find inside.
