Getty Museum’s social media art challenge

A few days back, at the beginning of quarantine, the Getty Museum issued a challenge on social media to re-create their followers’ favorite art using just three objects lying around their houses. Thousands of people responded and the Museum is sharing all of their creativity and sense of humour on its blog.

The challenge was inspired by the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam and a brilliant Instagram account called Between Art and Quarantine, but adapted with the invitation to use digitized and downloadable artworks from Getty’s online collection.
