Michelangelo A Different View at the Decatur Civic Center

Information

A Different View allows an unprecedented closeness to the magnificent works of Michelangelo, the originals of which adorn the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel at a height of 22 meters / 72 feet.

A Different View consists of four main sections. The heart of the exhibition is the Genesis with its nine pictures, which we took down to earth to get A Different View. 

Section Two are the heroic tales and Section Tree are the twenty Prophets & Sibyls. And then there is the Last Judgement which can be up to 6x 6 meters. In addition: the Quattrocento frescoes have adorned the walls of the Sistine Chapel since the 15th century.  These impressive frescoes await visitors in the entrance.

The scenes from the life of Jesus and that of Moses painted by Sandro Botticelli, Pietro Perugino, Domenico Ghirlandaio and Cosimo Rosselli provide additional historical background and allow for a deeper insight into this epoch.
