Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel: The Exhibition
Visits The Big E
View the Iconic Masterpieces at the Young Building
West Springfield, Massachusetts –Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel: The Exhibition will be a featured attraction at The Big E this September in West Springfield, Massachusetts. After successful runs in the US, Canada, Europe, and China, this one-of-a-kind showcase – presented by SEE Global Entertainment – recreates one of the world’s greatest artistic achievements through photographic reproduction. The highlights of the famous painter’s work are displayed in their original size.
For art lovers who might not get the chance to visit Michelangelo’s masterpiece in Italy, this innovative interpretation is certainly a great way to experience the timeless masterpieces, including the Creation of Adam and The Last Judgment, without traveling internationally.
“We are thrilled to bring Michelangelo’s iconic artwork to the Big E. Our exhibition allows visitors to explore Michelangelo’s artwork up close and personal, something that is impossible to achieve anywhere but here. Guests who have already visited the Sistine Chapel have told me that they found a new way to appreciate the art of Michelangelo through this exhibition,” says Martin Biallas CEO of SEE Global Entertainment and producer of this exhibition.
He continues, “The show features 13 life-size photographic reproductions of Michelangelo’s ceiling frescoes, brilliantly illuminated, with outstanding resolution, clarity and color. While we can’t fit all of the frescoes at full size in the venue, rest assured that the other images will be included at an appropriate size in order to give the visitor the whole context of the ceiling.”
During the State Fair, the exhibition will run every day from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. in the Young Building. All fair attendees are able to attend the show. Audio and souvenir guides are available for purchase at the door for a nominal entrance fee. More info is available at www.TheBige.com
