The J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles ask people to recreate famous paintings at home with their stuff
Amid coronavirus pandemic people are not able to come out stuck at home but now they can show their creativity by recreating photo of their favorite masterpieces
The Getty Museum challenge, where you have to recreate your favorite work of art with 3 things lying around your home, was inspired by the Tussen Kunst en Quarantaine
The Getty’s fans responded with a lot of enthusiasm and flooded social media with their unique artistic interpretations.
However, the Getty isn’t the only museum doing a challenge like this. The Pinchuk Art Centre in Kyiv, Ukraine, also challenged the art community to reproduce their fave art masterpieces by taking part

Bored Panda also previously spoke to the Getty Museum’s team to learn more about the challenge and the huge number of submissions they’ve gotten.
Annelisa Stephan, assistant director for digital content strategy at the Getty, told that they have “lost count” of all the photos that people have sent them. According to her, the submissions number “many thousands.”
“In addition to the ones posted publicly, there have been hundreds and hundreds more DM’d to us! We didn’t expect such a reaction in our wildest dreams—we thought a few people might enjoy the activity, but it clearly struck a chord!” Annelisa revealed.
“People have been so creative and so supportive of other people’s creations, cheering them on, laughing, and celebrating their favorites.
We’ve received creative responses from the US, Canada, Europe, Asia, Australia,” she said. “We’ve also been thrilled to see kids of all ages getting into the act, and high school teachers organizing their art history students to incorporate the challenge into their classwork. It’s a great way to look at and learn about art while being creative with constraints.
