Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel: The Exhibition is at Atlanta’s Westside Cultural Arts Center through May 23. The internationally-acclaimed touring exhibition from SEE Attractions, Inc. features an immersive presentation of museum-quality, near life-size reproductions of the iconic master’s frescoes that adorn the Sistine Chapel in Rome. This exhibit features 34 reproductions such as “The Creation of Adam” and “The Last Judgement.”
Here are six reasons visit this must-see exhibition:
1. It’s easier than traveling to Rome.
With many trips and grand adventures canceled or postponed due to the pandemic, take advantage of this European experience close to home. Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel: The Exhibition is on view at Westside Cultural Arts Center. Nestled in West Midtown, Westside Cultural Arts Center is a short distance from restaurants, shopping, and much more.
2. See Michelangelo’s work from a new perspective.
The exhibition is an innovative and unique interpretation of Michelangelo’s timeless masterpiece. The scenes from the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel have been reproduced in their original sizes using state-of-the-art technology with special expertise and care. Michelangelo’s celebrated scenes, normally viewed from the ground to the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, are recreated at eye level in their original size, allowing visitors to observe all the intricate details of these masterpieces.
3. Avoid crowds with safe timed entry.
Avoid the crowds and enjoy the exhibition at your own pace. With about 25,000 people visiting the Sistine Chapel each day, guests can only view Michelangelo’s masterpiece for a brief period before being swept away by the crowd. At the exhibition, timed tickets offer guests the opportunity to safely avoid the crowds and take their time fully stepping into the world of Michelangelo.
