Art museum asks people to recreate famous artworks using random objects at home

If there’s one thing that life under lockdown is trying to remind us, it is that we can always find creative ways to keep ourselves entertained. In the first few weeks of isolation, establishments like zoos, theme parks, and schools came up with virtual tours and online classes so people could still explore the world even in the comfort of their homes. Meanwhile, celebrities and many of the general public found relief and entertainment in viral challenges. (We just hope that they’re not taking up the #CoronavirusChallenge because it’s gross.)

And to make our current situation less stressful, The J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles, California, thought of starting an online fad that is completely different (and artsy, by the way) from the usual “quarantine games” we have witnessed over the past few weeks.

On Twitter, @GettyMuseum invited their followers to recreate a work of art using people and objects found inside their homes. The mechanics are simple but it will surely put everyone’s creativity to the test.

The tweet, which was reshared 5,000 times, just received the funniest and most resourceful entries. 

Lo and behold, the new Madonna and Child

This family included some unicorns because why not

Apart from this challenge, the art museum also came up with #museumgames to keep the art-loving community engaged. More of these, please!
