Description

These 7’4″ x 4′ tufa stone busts of “Leonardo Da Vinci” and “Thomas Edison” were carved by Frederick E. Olmsted, great-nephew of famed landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted, for the WPA exhibition “Art in Action” at the Treasure Island world’s fair. They are located on the exterior of the Science Hall.
