Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel: The Exhibition comes to Halifax Exhibition Centre July 7

Another projection-based show of historic art arrives in HRM.

If Sobeys' plan to phase out Air Miles meant you cashed yours in, and it ain't much, the Halifax Exhibition Centre has your back: Another globe-trotting projection art show is preparing to set up shop at 200 Prospect Road.

It was announced today that a digital rendering of Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel—simply called Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel: The Exhibition—will be on view at the Exhibition Centre. The show starts July 7, and is scheduled to be open Thursday-Sunday, 10am-6pm, through July 31. Tickets for the projection start at $28 and are available via the site chapelsistine.com.

Earlier in 2022, another projection-based show lit up Instagram feeds and Facebook stories all over town. Beyond Van Gogh billed itself as an "immersive experience" while blasting stories-high versions of "Starry Night" on the blacked-out walls of the Exhibition Centre. Now, the famous Vatican site gets the same treatment—but unlike the original, we doubt Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel: The Exhibition will take four years to complete.
