Following much success around the UK and internationally, Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel: The Exhibition will be coming to Glasgow this June, and you can snap up your tickets now. Boasting 34 replicas of the famous Sistine Chapel frescoes from the Vatican in Rome, this exhibition offers a new way to see the magnificent works: up-close like never before.
At the Old Ice Rink at Braehead Shopping Centre, you’ll get a taste of the Eternal City on your doorstep, as licensed high-definition photos and a special printing technique are employed to reproduce the look and feel of Michelangelo’s original works. This exhibition has been hugely successful in London, Birmingham, New York, Vancouver and Brisbane, so it is sure to thrill guests here in Glasgow too.
Unlike in the Vatican, you’ll be able to get almost nose to nose with the artworks for up to 90 minutes, seeing them from a brand-new perspective in full technicolour. The likes of David and Goliath, Jeremiah, and of course, the iconic Creation of Adam await you, spanning from floor to ceiling in the venue. You’ll be able to snap as many photos as you’d like to commemorate the experience – something that is forbidden in the Sistine Chapel itself.
At the exhibition, you’ll have access to insightful audio guides. The informative nuggets of information will ensure you get a full, 360-degree understanding of Michelangelo’s work and process. And, if you need anything more, the informative signage throughout the space offers additional guidance and facts. So whether travel, art or history is your passion, bag your tickets to Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel: The Exhibition for a brilliant afternoon.
