The Missouri History Museum's Vatican Splendors exhibit
Posted on June 9, 2010 at 1:53 PM
Throughout this breathtaking exhibit, Vatican art, history, culture and religion are presented through extraordinary works by masters including Michelangelo, Bernini, Giotto and Guercino, and objects dating back to the first century. From the venerated relics (bone fragments) of Saint Peter and Saint Paul to Michelangelo's art and tools used in work on the Sistine Chapel, this exhibit comprises one of the largest Vatican collections ever to tour North America. Many items have never before been on public view!
The Missouri History Museum is in need of volunteers to assist with the exhibit, Vatican Splendors: A Journey through Faith and Art. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to truly be a part of an exhibit from one of the most renowned museums in the world!
Volunteers will be asked to perform a variety of tasks, including ensuring that visitors do not touch artifacts, assisting with traffic flow within the exhibition and helping visitors in ticket lines. Each volunteer shift is a minimum of 2-3 hours. Day, evening and weekend shifts are available and volunteers may schedule as many shifts throughout the span of the exhibit as they prefer. Vatican Splendors volunteers will also receive special benefits as a thank you from the Museum and the exhibit organizer.
