Jasper Community Arts is thrilled to announce the highly anticipated special exhibition, “Michelangelo: A Different View,” opening its doors to the public on Wednesday, June 28. Presented
with generous support from the United Cabinet Foundation and Dean & Ellen Vonderheide, this captivating exhibit promises to provide an unparalleled experience of the renowned artist’s extraordinary masterpieces.
Michelangelo – A Different View allows for an unprecedented closeness to the magnificent works of Michelangelo, the originals of which adorn the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel at the height of nearly 70 feet. Far away from the enormous streams of visitors to the Sistine Chapel, visitors here can take in the imposing paintings at their leisure and soak them in from only a few feet away.
Under the license of the Vatican Museums, the images were reproduced and transferred to special fabric webs. This technique allows true-to-life reproduction providing a glimpse of the works, which, apart from Michelangelo, has been given to only a few people.
“We are honored to present ‘Michelangelo: A Different View’ at the Thyen-Clark Cultural Center,” said Kyle Rupert, Executive Director for JCA. “This exhibition offers a rare glimpse into the brilliance of Michelangelo, showcasing his ability to evoke emotions and transcend time with his creations. We are immensely grateful to the United Cabinet Foundation and Dean & Ellen Vonderheide for their support, which has made this
extraordinary exhibition possible.”
These elaborate reproductions of the paintings in the exhibition Michelangelo – A Different View allow visitors an intimate experience with the stunning frescoes of the Florentine genius. The exhibition by no means attempts to reproduce the Sistine Chapel. Instead, it aims to provide observers with a view of Michelangelo’s technique, which still sets standards today. The experience also develops a very personal perspective of the
depictions and intentions of the artist.
The exhibit will run from June 28 to July 25, allowing visitors ample time to explore and appreciate Michelangelo’s profound impact on the world of art. Whether you are an art enthusiast, a history buff, or simply curious about the genius of Michelangelo, this exhibition promises to leave a lasting impression.
