Michelangelo – The Science of Art

The most comprehensive exhibition presented on Michelangelo aims to provide visitors with an unparalleled experience, immersing them into the daily life of one of the greatest artists of the Italian Renaissance: a sculptor, a painter, an architect and a poet.

This unique exhibition features exact reproductions of his most iconic sculptural masterpieces cast from the originals by Artisans from the Gipsoteca Nationale (Florence, Italy) using ancient casts created during the 1800s. The exhibition enables visitors to stand mere feet away from some of the most incredible sculptures ever realized and learn more about the scientific tools and techniques used in Michelangelo’s workshop to bring his art to life.

“The Michelangelo exhibition brought lots of people who’ve never been in the gallery. It sparked an interest in art and provided an opportunity for many, who were not particularly interested in the arts before.”
