Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel: The Exhibition, sponsored by Uncommon USA, will be a featured attraction at The Big E September 15 to Oct. 1 in West Springfield, Massachusetts. After successful runs in the US, Canada, Europe, and China, this one-of-a-kind showcase – presented by SEE Global Entertainment – recreates one of the world’s greatest artistic achievements through photographic reproduction. The highlights of the famous painter’s work are displayed in their original size.
For art lovers who might not get the chance to visit Michelangelo’s masterpiece in Italy, this innovative interpretation is certainly a great way to experience the timeless masterpieces, including the Creation of Adam and The Last Judgment, without traveling internationally.
“We are thrilled to bring Michelangelo’s iconic artwork to The Big E. Our exhibition allows visitors to explore Michelangelo’s artwork up close and personal, something that is impossible to achieve anywhere but here. Guests who have already visited the Sistine Chapel have told me that they found a new way to appreciate the art of Michelangelo through this exhibition,” says Martin Biallas CEO of SEE Global Entertainment and producer of this exhibition.
He continues, “The show features 13 life-size photographic reproductions of Michelangelo’s ceiling frescoes, brilliantly illuminated, with outstanding resolution, clarity and color. While we can’t fit all of the frescoes at full size in the venue, rest assured that the other images will be included at an appropriate size in order to give the visitor the whole context of the ceiling.”
The exhibit is free and open to all fair patrons every day from 10am to 10pm in the Young Building. Audio and souvenir guides are available for purchase at the door for a nominal fee. More info is available at www.chapelsistine.com.
