The internationally acclaimed Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel Exhibition, opens Friday, Jan. 14 at Mall at Fairfield Commons, in Beavercreek. Presented by SEE© Global Entertainment family, the exhibition is a presentation of museum-quality, near-life-size reproductions of one of the world’s greatest artistic achievements.

Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel: The Exhibition in Dayton“This exhibition gives visitors a chance to engage with Rome’s most iconic treasures in ways that were never possible,” said Martin Biallas, CEO of Los Angeles-based SEE© Global Entertainment, producer of the exhibit.

The Sistine Chapel: The Exhibition at Mall at Fairfield Commons is a collection of Michelangelo’s renowned ceiling frescoes from the Vatican’s Sistine Chapel, reproduced in a format that allows viewers to get face-to-face with the masterpieces. Through more than 30 artfully displayed reproductions, this innovative presentation includes world-renowned pieces like The Creation of Adam and The Last Judgement, bringing them just a few feet away from the audience.  

"This exhibition is like a sanctuary, you're transformed into a completely different world," said Biallas, who produced this exhibit after seeing ceiling frescoes in person. "When I visited the Sistine Chapel in Rome, there were long lines and we were rushed through. This exhibit at Mall at Fairfield Commons allows everyone an opportunity to see the amazing art at their pace and up-close, at an affordable price, and enjoy an inspiring and unforgettable experience.” 

Guests may enhance their experience by adding an audio guide, with narrative accompaniment available in multiple languages to include Spanish, French, Chinese, Korean and German.  As you stand in front of a reproduction your phone will activate and tell you the story of that particular piece of the ceiling.

“We are thrilled to bring this exhibit to the Mall at Fairfield Commons,” said Leanne Rubosky, general manager of the Mall at Fairfield Commons. “This exhibit will provide a unique opportunity for visitors of all ages to engage and interact with beautiful art while visiting the center.”

"We have had sold-out openings in Minneapolis, Phoenix, Charlotte, Charleston,  Atlanta, Nashville, and San Diego, and it is our privilege to bring one of Rome's most iconic artworks to the Dayton area," said Biallas.

The Sistine Chapel exhibit will be open for a limited time at Mall at Fairfield Commons beginning Jan. 14 with tickets sold Wednesday – Saturday 10 a.m.- 6 p.m. and Sundays 11 a.m.–5:30 p.m. Tickets start at  $19 for adults, $13.30 for youth, discounts for seniors, students, military and family bundles are available.
