Mundo Latino in Partnership with SEE Global Entertainment,

Breathtaking Vatican Artistry to Be Displayed at the 2016 State Fair of Texas

Rafael Luna, producer of Mundo Latino, and Martin Biallas, CEO of SEE Global Entertainment (SEE), announced today that “Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel: The Exhibition” will have its U.S. premiere on September 30, 2016 at the State Fair of Texas in Dallas.

The unique exhibition recreates one of mankind’s greatest artistic achievements, Michelangelo’s renowned ceiling frescoes from the Vatican’s Sistine Chapel, reproduced photographically and artfully displayed in its original size in an innovative interpretation of the timeless masterpieces to be viewed up close, including “The Creation” and “The Last Judgment”.

Set to run every day from 10 am to 7 pm through the State Fair of Texas, the exhibit is expected to achieve record-breaking attendance numbers, with more than 150,000 art lovers, families, and students. Fair attendees will be able to purchase tickets for the exhibit in advance and at the door for a nominal entrance fee. The exhibit will remain at Fair Park after the State Fair. Details will be forthcoming.

Martin Biallas, SEE’s CEO, described the sacred and majestic experience that will greet State Fair of Texas visitors at the Mundo Latino Exhibit. “The exhibit showcases 34 life-size photographic reproductions of Michelangelo’s ceiling frescoes, exhibited on 16-foot panels with a trussing structure, brilliantly illuminated with outstanding resolution, clarity and color. It will also feature other Michelangelo works including a life size replica of his ‘Pieta’ sculpture, biographical films, and a display of his letters and poems to show the genius and complexity of his life.”

Biallas is the famed original creator of the award-winning “Titanic” and “Star Trek” exhibitions and of other successful traveling exhibitions worldwide.  To produce Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel – The Exhibition, Biallas teamed with Erich Lessing the noted photographer of The Louvre and the Vatican Museums, with spectacular results.
