Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel: The Exhibition is coming to Charleston this July. The experience is coming to the Holy City following sold out editions in Minneapolis, Phoenix, Charlotte, and Atlanta. This unique exhibition showcases Michelangelo’s renowned ceiling frescoes from the Vatican’s Sistine Chapel, reproduced photographically and artfully displayed in their original size.
LA-based exhibition production company Special Entertainment Events, Inc., CBF Productions, and Fever, say the exhibition will be held in a secret location to be announced in the coming weeks. The companies say this traveling exhibit “brings a totally new perspective to the work, while doing so at eye level.”
The ceiling paintings from the Sistine Chapel have been reproduced using a special printing technique that emulates the look and feel of the original paintings. Each image is accompanied by informative signage, and audio guides are available to rent for an even more in-depth experience.
Guests can join the waitlist here and have early access to tickets. Tickets go on sale Thursday, with prices for adults starting at $20.
The exhibit is suitable for all audiences. In addition to timed ticketing to limit capacity and physical distancing guidelines provided by public health administrators, visitors will be required to wear a mask at all times.
