GREEN BAY, WIS. – The internationally acclaimed Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel: The Exhibition, opens Friday, November 18 at the KI Convention Center in Downtown Green Bay. Presented by the SEE© Global Entertainment family, the exhibition is a presentation of museum-quality, near-life-size reproductions of one of the world’s greatest artistic achievements.
“This exhibition gives visitors a chance to engage with Rome’s most iconic treasures in ways that were never possible,” said Martin Biallas, CEO of Los Angeles-based SEE© Global Entertainment, producer of the exhibit.
Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel: The Exhibition is a collection of the artist’s renowned ceiling frescoes from the Vatican’s Sistine Chapel, reproduced in a format that allows viewers to get face-to-face with the masterpieces. Through 34 artfully displayed reproductions, this innovative presentation includes world-renowned pieces like The Creation of Adam and The Last Judgement, bringing them just a few feet away from the audience.
"This exhibition is like a sanctuary, you're transformed into a completely different world," said Biallas. “When I visited the Sistine Chapel in Rome, there were long lines and we were rushed through. This exhibit in Hartford allows everyone an opportunity to see the amazing art at their pace and up-close, at an affordable price, and enjoy an inspiring and unforgettable experience.”
Guests may enhance their experience by adding an audio guide, with narrative accompaniment available in multiple languages to include Spanish, French, Chinese, Korean and German.
“We are delighted to bring this must-see interactive art exhibit to the Connecticut Convention Center,” said Michael Costelli, Connecticut Convention Center general manager. “This exhibit will provide a unique opportunity for visitors of all ages to engage and interact with beautiful art while visiting the center.”
"We have had sold-out openings in San Diego, Cleveland, Dayton, Philadelphia, Washington D.C., and Dallas in recent months and it is our privilege to bring one of Rome's most iconic artworks to the Green Bay area," said Biallas.
