Time Out says

Photographic reproductions of Michelangelo’s ceiling frescoes from the Vatican’s Sistine Chapel come to a suburban mall, as Oakbrook Center hosts an exhibition that seeks to replicate the experience of gazing at these High Renaissance masterpieces. "Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel Exhibition" makes use of a special photographic technique that replicates the colors and details of the 34 frescoes, depicting them on lifesize canvases that brings the works to eye level.

Visitors are able to walk through the exhibit at their own pace, taking in the reproductions while listening to an informative audio guide. Spread throughout a space so that guests can practice social distancing during their visit, the spacious show allows you to get up-close and personal with photos of works like The Last Judgment and The Creation of Adam. It might not be quite like visiting the Sistine Chapel in-person, but your neck probably won't ache quite as much.

Visits to "Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel Exhibition" are timed and masks are required at all times.
