St. Louis Convention Center Will Host Reproductions Of Michelangelo's Iconic Frescoes

An exhibition featuring reproductions of Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel paintings will open at the America’s Center Convention Complex next week.

“Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel: The Exhibition” boasts 34 reproductions of the Renaissance master’s iconic frescoes. Among them are some of the most revered images in Western art, including “The Creation of Adam” and “The Last Judgment.”

The show has toured internationally but has been idle for about eight months because of the coronavirus pandemic. It was created by Las Vegas-based SEE Global Entertainment and is presented locally by Explore St. Louis, the city’s tourism commission.

1. Neat!! I definitely plan on going!! One big reason why I remained in STLMO after retiring, is ...

for reasons exactly like this, the museums, the attractions, the parks, everything positive about STLMO, is brought to the front. One of the largest 'small towns' around. If you visit STLMO, be sure to also visit the planetarium, the world class Zoo, and of course, Botanical Gardens / Tower Grove Park in the city (or Shaw's Garden (George Bernard Shaw)). The visit will be a reasonable cost, hotels etc. are reasonably close, and there are a few eating places open, but I suspect not many, you might want to recheck on this w/ your hotel.

I can't wait to go see these reproductions!

Didn’t see the closing date. Will check out the article.

3. I wish I could go!

I wish there were those 3-D goggle like gadgets that make you feel like you’re in a virtual reality where you could “walk” through these exhibits and feel like your really there.

I can actually see this sort of thing becoming quite common soon for communication and entertainment as an offshoot of the Coronavirus. Why not? It seems a logical next step.
