Reproductions, seen up close, shed new light on Renaissance masterpiece.
“Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel: The Exhibition” reproduces the ceiling paintings from the Sistine using state of the art technology. The paintings have been reproduced in their original sizes, and visitors can study them at a distance not possible in the Sistine Chapel.
The exhibit focuses on Michelangelo’s contributions to the Sistine Chapel: namely the artwork from the ceiling and the Last Judgment. “By bringing the artwork closer, we hope the visitor will be able to appreciate these famous masterpieces from a new perspective,” organizers say.
The exhibit takes place in the Cathedral Cultural Center and runs until January 11.
