People are restricted to their homes throughout the quarantine period, and visiting an art gallery is never an option. As a result, the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles came up with a novel method for keeping art lovers busy: they challenged people to recreate well-known paintings and artworks at home, and the reaction was overwhelmingly positive.

The Getty is still closed due to the coronavirus, but the museum assists the community. To aid doctors and nurses fighting COVID-19, the Getty donated thousands of gloves and hundreds of masks to UCLA Health. Now, the museum is looking into new ways to help local and global communities.

The challenge, announced on Twitter, asks people to make a copy of their favorite piece of art using three things from their homes.

In this era of social distance, going to museums to see art in person is not an option. But that hasn’t stopped people from interacting with works by Old Masters and modern artists and recreating them in their style.

With the help of museums, people have started substituting the elegant lace collars, exquisite parasols, and exotic pets that embellish the history of art with the daily commodities they have around them, such as toilet paper, hygiene products, and canned goods, all of which have come to represent the crisis.

An Instagram account in the Netherlands called Tussen Kunst & Quarantaine appears where the request for homemade artwork first appeared (or Between Art & Quarantine). Following the opening of the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles, which is closed while the city complies with stay-at-home directives, boosted it with some easy instructions: Find three items from your home and recreate one piece of art.

According to Annelisa Stephan, the museum’s assistant director of digital content, there have been roughly 30,000 responses to the challenge. The articles are lessons in art history brought to life, sometimes encouraging readers to study more about a specific artist, period, or piece of artwork. Families can use it to find inspiration during trying times and even as a means of self-expression.
