While art experts at the Vatican Museums had their doubts about the Met Gala, they rose to the defence of the Church’s artistic magnificence.
A surprise performance by the Sistine Chapel Choir brought the house down at the 2018 Met Gala.
The 2018 Met Gala, fashion’s biggest night out, proved to be a Catholic homecoming for many of the celebs on hand.
When the fashion world celebrates its biggest night tonight, several Catholic women say it’s a moment the Church can’t afford to ignore.
Rather than seeing the use of Catholic imagery at the fashion world’s biggest event as a risk, it could be seized as a huge teaching moment.
The upcoming “Heavenly Bodies” exhibit at the Met, featuring vestments and artwork on loan from the Sistine Chapel, is not the first time Vatican art has served as an ambassador to the United States.
