Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel: The Exhibition is Taking Over Candytopia This January

Perhaps you caught wind of the traveling Van Gogh exhibit that took over Tower Theater.  However, a bigger and even more interactive exhibit is coming to Fashion District’s Candytopia this January.

Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel: The Exhibition showcases the awe and wonder of arguably one of mankind’s greatest artistic achievements, while allowing its visitors to experience this art from an Up-Close, Life-Sized, and Never-Before-Seen perspective.

While visitors to the Vatican Museums in Rome can marvel at these frescoes only from afar, “Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel: The Exhibition” now offers the opportunity to observe these masterpieces close up, in the form of reproductions. The exhibition takes us up onto the scaffolding during restoration for a new perspective. After centuries of use, the paintings in the Chapel had become covered in such a thick layer of dust and soot, and as a result of this deterioration the brilliance of the original luminous colors had all but disappeared. It was not until the comprehensive restoration work carried out in the 1980s and 1990s that the true richness of color in the wall and ceiling frescoes could once more be observed. The exhibition illustrates the restoration and allows us to view the monumental paintings from a distance of only 4 meters, as opposed to the usual 20 meters. “Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel” thus brings an entirely new perspective to this work by Michelangelo and acts as a form of art in its own right.

With special expertise and care, the ceiling paintings from the Sistine Chapel have been reproduced in a truly unique way using licensed high definition photos. Brought to life using a special printing technique that emulates the look and feel of the original paintings, visitors are given a chance to engage with the artwork in ways that were never before possible: seeing every detail, every brushstroke, and every color of the artist’s 34 frescoes. Each image is accompanied by informative signage, and audio guides are available to rent for an even more in-depth experience.

This traveling exhibit has been produced globally and it will take over Candytopia January 2022. Currently running in New York, Nashville and Vancouver, tickets for the Philly exhibition have not gone on sale as of yet. However, tickets to other exhibits are going for $17.50-$21 a pop depending on the day of the week. We will update you with more info as it comes.

The exhibit is produced by SEE Global Entertainment (SEE©), a family of companies representing themed entertainment specializing in global touring exhibitions including; Star Trek, King Tut, Titanic, The X-Files, Asterix, Frida Kahlo, Michael Jackson, Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel, Museum of Failure, Disgusting Food Museum, and LumiNight Lantern Festival.
