Husband Keith and I decided to go to the State Fair. It just happened to be on while we were here and we’ve never been to one before and so we went with a degree of anticipation and expectation.
I was easy to get to, hop on the Dart and in just a few stops we were there and we threaded out way to the entrance. Our first stop inside was to the Women Museum which had an exhibition on. I never imagined I would be visiting the Sistine Chapel at the fair. I mean, it just wasn’t on my radar. But there it was, stunningly beautiful.
I have been to the real one and like millions of others I did sneak just one photo but to see it at the size it was produced was awe inspiring.
Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel: The Exhibition recreates the awe and wonder of arguably one of mankind’s greatest artistic achievements while allowing its visitors to experience this art from a new perspective.With special expertise and care, the ceiling paintings from the Sistine Chapel have been reproduced using state of the art technology. In order for the observer to fully engage and comprehend the artwork, the paintings have been reproduced in their original sizes.
The overwhelming impression for the observer will be the dimensions of the art, the closeness to the picture, and the modern style of the exhibition. As a result, the visitor can explore the artwork up close at a distance impossible to achieve in the Sistine Chapel.
