What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

Art and Quarantine


Getty Museum

Like all other museums, the Getty Museum in Los Angeles is closed until further notice. But oh, boy, did they get a genius idea to keep people engaged! They asked their fans and followers to recreate their favorite works of art at home and share the results. The response has been epic!

The challenge was inspired by the Instagram account Tussen Kunst & Quarantaine (Between Art & Quarantine) who has been asking people to submit their own interpretations of famous works of art for the last two weeks. The amazing works below are a mix of Tussen Kunst & Quarantine and Getty submissions.

You can follow the Getty Museum on their website and on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and YouTube. And you can follow Tussen Kunst & Quarantaine on Instagram.

  5. I love the humor in most of them. Another big smile day. We are now under a ‘stay at home’ order for the rest of the month. YUCK – Hal

  6. I was showing my kids these the other day and hoping it might inspire them to get creative and try their own – even if they don’t want to share them online. We’ve been swamped with homeschooling so I guess that is why they rejected my suggestion but next week is Spring break so maybe… I love that so many people have been building toilet paper and cleaning products into their recreations.
