Michelangelo: A Different View
The long-awaited Michelangelo – A Different View to finally take place March 18-April 17, 2022, after being rescheduled twice since April 2020. Every year, four million people visit the Sistine Chapel in Rome to admire the beautiful ceiling frescoes by Michelangelo. In partnership with Visit Baton Rouge, the Raising Cane’s River Center will be bringing these masterpieces to Baton Rouge, March 18-April 17, 2022. Michelangelo - A Different View offers the unique opportunity to look at his timeless work in a different way.
Michelangelo - A Different View presents a very different picture of Michelangelo’s works: the exhibition shows photo-mechanically reproduced copies almost in original size and in a way that invites visitors to look at them in a contemplative, and at the same time, enthusiastic manner. Where you must look up in the Sistine chapel, in the exhibition the masterpieces are on the ground, so that visitors can walk around the gigantic masterpieces, giving a unique “different view" of Michelangelo’s work.
Under the license of the Vatican Museums, 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.
