Michelangelo's iconic legacy is being celebrated by the Metropolitan Museum of Art through an exhibit titled Michelangelo: Divine Draftsman and Designer -- a unique experience which invites guests to view a digital rendering of the Sistine Chapel.

The exhibit consists of a series of collected pieces by the artist, including 133 drawings, three marble sculptures, a wooden model of a chapel vault and more. In order for the guests to witness the artist's most beloved piece, the museum used a specialized technology to digitally recreate Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel, projecting it on the ceiling for guests to view.

This immersive experience harnessed digital technology to fully pay homage to the artist, in a creative and original manner.
