Museum at Home Interactive Blog: #betweenartandquarantine Challenge

Have you ever wanted to be a part of a famous artwork?

While most of the country has entered some form of quarantine, many large art museums (starting with the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam and the J. Paul Getty Museum in CA) have invited folks from across the globe to share pictures of themselves imitating artworks!

The challenge is called Between Art and Quarantine.

You can learn more about the national challenge HERE

We’ve decided to throw our hat into the ring as well! Take a look at how we’ve decided to make life imitate art!
