What happens when the big Thanksgiving dinner is done, but you still have a house full of family and are looking for something fun? For something different, swap a trip to the crowded mall for a visit to Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel: The Exhibition to create unforgettable memories with your family this holiday season.
The one-of-a-kind exhibit offers fun for the entire family, showcasing 34 life-size photographic reproductions of Michelangelo’s ceiling frescoes, exhibited on 16-foot panels brilliantly illuminated, with outstanding resolution, clarity and color. Highlights of the exhibit include an intimate look at The Creation of Adam and a 40x41-foot rendition of The Last Judgment, as well as a fully narrated audio tour (available in English and Spanish) that provides narrative and insight behind each and every panel on display.
“Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel: The Exhibition offers a chance to see these masterpieces in a unique and comfortable setting at a distance physically impossible to achieve in Vatican City,” says Martin Biallas, CEO of SEE Global Entertainment and producer of this exhibition that recreates one of the world’s greatest artistic achievements. The exhibition is co-produced by Beau Ioana of Giobeau Productions and by Dallas-based Rafael Luna of Strategic Events.
“During your visit, we allow you to take all the photos you desire, which is not permitted at the Sistine Chapel in Vatican City. We know that not everyone will have the privilege of traveling to Rome to visit the Sistine Chapel, so we brought Rome to Dallas for less than what it would cost you to eat lunch in Italy!”
Future programming will include lectures, cafe conversations and holiday programs. Unique gifts and merchandise will be for sale on-site throughout the engagement. More information is available at www.chapelsistine.com.
