BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – History is coming to Baton Rouge next month.

Michelangelo – A Different View is going to set up shop at the Raising Cane’s River Center from September 1 through September 30.

The Raising Cane’s River Center provided these details about the incoming exhibition:

Michelangelo – A Different View presents a very different picture of Michelangelo’s works: the exhibition shows photo-mechanically reproduced copies almost in original size and in a way that invites visitors to look at them in a contemplative, and at the same time, enthusiastic manner. Where you must look up in the Sistine chapel, in the exhibition the masterpieces are on the ground, so that visitors can walk around the gigantic masterpieces, giving a unique “different view” of Michelangelo’s work.

Michelangelo – A Different View has been put off twice due to COVID-19.

This month-long exhibition is made possible through the efforts of Visit Baton Rouge, Louisiana Travel and a license with the Vatican Museums.

The Raising Cane’s River Center says “the images were reproduced and transferred to special fabric webs.”

This provides the viewer a ‘true-to-life’ look at the works of Michelangelo, although with a different spin and many miles away from the Sistine Chapel.

If you are interested in attending this exhibition, ticket information can be found below:

  • $17.50 (adult)
  • $12.50 (groups of 10 or more)
  • $7.50 (kids 12 and under)

Tickets are available either at the Raising Cane’s River Center Box Office or
