Welcome to Little David's travelogue!
Little David is in Seattle from Florence as part of SAM's exhibition Michelangelo Public and Private. You may have seen him traveling around town. If you are lucky enough to spot him, pick him up and show him the city. Take a photo or two and post them on our Flickr account, or upload your videos to YouTube.
Michelangelo Public and Private brings one of history's greatest figures to Seattle for the first time. Drawn exclusively from the collection of the Casa Buonarroti in Florence, the show explores Michelangelo's complex personality and different aspects of his life and career.
The primary focus of the exhibition is Michelangelo's preliminary work for the Sistine Chapel in Rome, including 12 original working drawings for the Sistine Ceiling and the Last Judgment. Together, these objects give modern viewers insight into the artist's working process, from sketches to finished studies.
