To explore and celebrate the artwork of Michelangelo, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City curated an exhibit called Michelangelo: Divine Draftsman and DesignerThis unique experience collects numerous rarely exhibited pieces created by Michelangelo.

The exhibit brings together 133 of Michelangelo’s drawings, three marble sculptures and a wooden model for a chapel vault, in addition to other works. In the galleries, the museum used digital technology to recreate Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel and have it displayed on the ceiling for everyone to view during their walk. Works by other artists will be featured in the exhibit to show the comparison between the different eras of styles.

The exhibit will remain open at the Metropolitan Museum of Art until February 12, 2018.
