Imagine having the chance to stop and admire the stunning frescos the famous Italian artist painted across the historical Sistine Chapel. Imagine being able to do so without the price point of a flight to Italy…
That’s exactly what you’ll do at Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel: The Exhibition coming to Richmond in September! This amazing event, coming from the LA-based SEE Global Entertainment (SEE™), a family of companies that specialize in global touring exhibitions, showcases the awe and wonder of arguably one of mankind’s greatest artistic achievements, while allowing its visitors to experience this art from an up-close, life-sized, and never-before-seen perspective.
If you want to see the exhibit under the glow of candlelight, there’s a special one-day-only concert on October 3rd! The Listeso String Quartet will perform stunning classics from Vivaldi’s Four Seasons, as well as pieces from Astor Piazzolla.
The space, covered in true-to-size replications of the Sistine Chapel’s artwork, takes you on a stunning ride through the incredible works of one of history’s greatest artists.
With special expertise and care, the ceiling paintings from the Sistine Chapel have been reproduced in a truly unique way using licensed high-definition photos. Brought to life using a special printing technique that emulates the look and feel of the original paintings, visitors are given a chance to engage with the artwork in a way that was never before possible: seeing every detail, every brushstroke, and every color of the artist’s 34 frescoes.
The fresco method of painting makes the work, over time, blend into the plastered surface it’s painted on. This enchanting experience replicates that with vibrant 360-degree, floor-to-ceiling replications of the full body of work.
Prepare to be totally immersed in a historical era of Rome and one of history’s greatest artists.
