Special Entertainment Events, Inc. (SEE™) has announced details for a three-month run of its renowned Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel: The Exhibition. The immersive art exhibit features 10,000 square feet of the artist’s frescoes that adorn the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel in the Vatican. The Croft Downtown, located in the historic Warehouse District, will play host to the public exhibition from Nov. 20 to Feb 14.
The 17,000 square foot venue accommodates physical distancing guidelines provided by public health administrators. Guests will be required to wear a mask at all times, and managed entry/exit (as well as timed-ticketing) will limit the amount of visitors in the exhibit at one time.
Revered for its likeness and globally acclaimed, the exhibition has brought unique experiences to hundreds of thousands of visitors around the world, in locations such as New York City, Shanghai, Berlin, Bogota and Vienna. Phoenix and The Croft will be joining the ranks of the America’s Center Convention Complex in St. Louis, and the Mall of America outside of Minneapolis, as cities and venues currently hosting the attraction.
The exhibit will include 34 panels of the frescoes produced in their near-original size. Among these reproductions are masterpieces like The Creation of Adam and The Last Judgement. The exhibit brings visitors within just a few feet of the frescoes, producing a once in a lifetime experience.
Art enthusiasts and the devout alike will find the exhibit provides an opportunity to encounter Michelangelo’s work in a contemporary, uncluttered, self-timed and in-depth way. Guests may enhance the experience with a downloadable premium optional audio guide, with accompanying narrative available in English and Spanish.
Adding to the experience, the exhibit features a small theater showing educational videos about Michelangelo and the Sistine Chapel.
Open daily, except Tuesdays, tickets may be purchased in advance or same-day for single parties and groups. Tickets will be limited to ensure social-distancing standards. Tickets for general admission are $18, with discounts for senior citizens. The exhibit’s hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
