A unique exhibition is slated for Calgary starting next month, showcasing some of the greatest works by Michelangelo at the Sistine Chapel.
Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel: The Exhibition invites visitors to experience the 34 frescoes on the Vatican ceiling in life-sized, close-up detail right here in Calgary.
According to organizers, the frescoes were reproduced by using “state of the art technology from exclusively licensed high definition photos.”
