Upon opening to universal praise and record-breaking crowds, Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel: The Exhibition has announced an extension of the exhibit beyond the scheduled dates of the State Fair through the New Year. Rome's iconic masterpiece will remain in the former Women’s Museum at Fair Park through January 8, 2017.
“Based on the crowds and dynamic response in the past few short weeks, we feel confident that the opportunity to share Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel throughout the fall and holiday season will be met with enthusiasm from school and church groups, families, tourists and the countless numbers of culturally curious North Texans who will continue to experience this iconic masterpiece up close and personally,” says Martin Biallas, CEO of SEE Global Entertainment and producer of this exhibition that recreates one of the world’s greatest artistic achievements through life-sized photographic reproduction. The Exhibition is co-produced by Beau Ioana of Giobeau Productions and by Dallas-based Rafael Luna of Strategic Events.
The exhibit showcases 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.
Future programming will include lectures, cafe conversations, VIP tours and holiday honors. Unique gifts and merchandise will be for sale on-site throughout the engagement. More information is available at www.chapelsistine.com.
