#BetweenArtAndQuarantine Challenge

Posted by:
Between Art and Quarantine
May 16, 2020

Earlier this spring, the Getty Museum issued a fun and interesting challenge on social media: recreate a famous artwork using only readily available household items. This idea was inspired by the Dutch Instagram account Between Art and Quarantine. Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook were flooded with unique and clever submissions. Professors Heather Mathews and Kate Hoyt challenged their art and communication classes to make their own interpretations of famous artwork. We have collected students’ submissions here to share with you. Dr. Hoyt put her students’ submissions together in a video; Dr. Mathews’ students’ work is below.
