FLINT, Mich. (AP) — The exhibit “Madonnas of the Masters” at the Sloan Museum in Flint has been extended until June.

The museum says the exhibit was originally scheduled to close earlier this month. It’s part of a larger display titled “Portrait Figures in Miniature: The Pierson Doll Collection.”

Carol Pierson commissioned more than 20 dioramas based on Renaissance paintings of the Madonna and Child, and half of those are on display. Doll artists Halle Blakely and Gertrude Florian recreated the figures. Flint artist Stefan Davidek painted the backdrops, and designed and built the cases.

The exhibit is included in regular museum admission.
