Museum In LA Challenged Art Lovers To Recreate Famous Paintings At Home, Get Hilarious Responses

Maybe we’re on lockdown, but apparently not our creativity. In fact, with all this time in our hands, some people are surely using it to challenge themselves on the creative side. The J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles challenged art lovers to post photos of themselves recreating their favorite masterpieces from home and the outcome is just epic.

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 (Between Art and Quarantine) Instagram account from Amsterdam. And the Getty’s not the only one inspiring people to show their love of art during quarantine: the Pinchuk Art Centre in Kyiv, Ukraine is doing the same.

According to the Getty’s representative, the museum still keeps on getting challenge submissions. “They keep coming! More than 100 a day,” she said.

“The online challenge has reached many people around the world who may not be in a position to visit Los Angeles or Getty. We hope they’ll be inspired to come when they get a chance,” the museum representative told us.

She also confirmed that many of the museum staff are working at home, while a number are working on-site to “ensure the collections and grounds are safe and well maintained.” The representative also revealed that everyone’s eager to get on-site to see their coworkers and work with the collections once again.

Annelisa Stephan, assistant director for digital content strategy at the Getty, said 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.”

Another Getty representative told Bored Panda that the museum is always developing new online resources. One of the newest additions was a video of the Getty’s “wonderful but now-shuttered Michelangelo exhibitions.”

The Getty is still closed because of the coronavirus, however, the museum is helping its local community out. In fact, the Getty donated thousands of gloves and hundreds of masks to UCLA Health to help out doctors and nurses fighting Covid-19. Since then, the museum is looking for new ways to help both the local and global communities.

1. For those with golden heart

KikkakPattyWak

My parents split when I was in first grade. My mom met my step-dad, mark when I was in second grade. We moved in with him by the time I was in 3rd we moved into his house. He treated my siblings and me as his own since day 1. He even would watch Gilmore Girls with me and my sister every afternoon. After my mom died when I was 16, Mark didn’t make us go live with our biological dad. He continued raising us as his own. He started out as my mom’s boyfriend and became my dad, my best friend, my go-to for advice.

Mark ended up working 3 jobs while having heart failure, asthma, and diabetes. He did everything he could to provide for my sister and me. He passed away 6 days before I graduated college in 2016. It’s been a few years but I still have trouble on Father’s Day. He could have ditched us when our mom died and we didn’t have enough income. But he didn’t. He was there fighting to put food on the table. Happy Father’s Day to all of the fathers who fight for their children.
