- "The Creation of Adam" is among the Sistine Chapel frescoes recreated in the traveling exhibition.
The exhibit will include 34 reproductions of Michelangelo’s works that adorn the Sistine Chapel in Italy, including “The Creation of Adam” and “The Last Judgement.”
Rather than craning your necks to admire the works on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, visitors can walk through a 9,000-square-foot mansion’s three stories and come up close with the works while sipping on drinks.
The near life-sized exhibit is to fill the spaces of the Lambermont Events venue, marking the first time the touring exhibition will be hosted in a historic house.
Those who haven’t visited the chapel will have the opportunity to admire Michelangelo’s works for the first time, while those who have will be able to do so from a new perspective and closer than before.
Ten-thousand Texans are already in the virtual queue to visit the show, so book your tickets sooner rather than later to secure your spot.
$10-$23.50, 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Thursday through Sunday June 11-September 6, Lambermont Events, 950 E. Grayson St., sistinechapelexhibit.com.
