This Michelangelo Exhibition Brings The Works Of The Sistine Chapel To Columbus

A beautiful new exhibition at the Greater Columbus Convention Center has the world-famous work of Michelangelo front and center.

The exhibition, called Michelangelo: A Different View, features over 50 recreated pieces of Michelangelo’s, including the Last Judgement and the Creation of Adam. Visitors can view the reproductions at a shorter distance and take more time to appreciate their intricate details.

When visiting the Sistine Chapel to admire the works, visitors have to look up at a distance. At the exhibition, the gigantic masterpieces are displayed on the ground, with visitors encouraged to walk around and take a closer look.

According to the event promoters, the images were “reproduced and transferred to special fabric webs. This technique allows a true-to-life reproduction and gives a glimpse of the works, which, apart from Michelangelo, has so far been given to only a few people.”

All tickets for the event must be purchased in advance, as there won’t be any sales at the door. Tickets start at $10 and visitors will need to bring headphones to listen to the guided tour on their smartphones.
