Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel

It is a great year for local art lovers as another unique exhibition has landed in Vancouver.

This time you can view some of the masterful art by Michelangelo. For the first time ever, life-sized digital paintings of all 34 frescoes of the Sistine Chapel are on display, providing an up-close and personal experience with the artwork like never before.

Usually only seen by those lucky enough to have travelled to the Vatican in Italy, this exhibit allows you to view each fresco in high-definition.
