Museums Are Asking People to Recreate their Artworks During Quarantine. People Deliver!
The only things you need are: you choose an art piece, you pick three things from your home, you pose – and click. Oh, I guess you need one more thing, creativity! We don’t normally follow online challenges but this one is interesting to be sure. People all over the world have accepted this challenge, known as the Getty Museum Challenge, and share the results online.
Some are truly hilarious while others are both spot on and aesthetically pleasing. The challenge itself is pretty straight forward. You find an artwork online that you like to recreate, you pick three things laying around the house, you strike up the right pose and take the picture. Today we are going to take a look at the 29 best attempts from the “Between Art and Quarantine” Instagram page (“Tussen Kunst & Quarantaine” in Dutch) which is said to have inspired the Getty Museum Challenge itself. Which one is your favorite? Which artwork would you choose?
