Getty Museum Asks People in Self-Isolation to Recreate Classic Artworks
The Getty Museum in Los Angeles is challenging people to recreate their favorite artworks using themselves as the subjects and household objects as their props. Currently closed to the public as a result of the coronavirus outbreak, the art museum started the initiative as a way of keeping their community engaged as they self-isolate.
Getty posted the challenge to its twitter account on Wednesday, asking people to get creative during their time using just three things lying around the house. Since then, the museum’s social media has been flooded with responses ranging from impressive re-creations of classics including master of Saint Cecilia’s Madonna and Child, the anonymously created Virgin, Saint Elizabeth, and the Infants John the Baptist and Christ.
