Between Art and Quarantine: Museums challenge you to recreate your favorite artwork using household items
More than half of the world is living in some kind of quarantine now due to the spread of coronavirus. It is not easy for any of us to live in such a limited way, but our imagination and creativity can be our best friends at such time.
tussenkunstenquarantaine(between art and quarantine) challenge
The instagram account #tussenkunstenquarantaine(Between Art and Quarantine ) has initiated the challenge of recreating one's favorite artwork at home using household stuff.
Tussen Kunst & Quarantaine
For everyone at home who needs some relief. Some homemade art ð©ð¼âð¨
1. Pic your artwork
2. Use 3 items in your home

This initiative then inspired The Rijks museum in Amsterdam, Holland to do the same. The museum is open 24 hours online now.

Getty Museum challange
Then Getty Museum in Los Angles, CA, United States, inspired by the above two challenges, initiated its own challenge adapted with the invitation to use digitized and downloadable artworks from Gettyâs online collection.
The Getty museum has been closed since March 14, and will remain closed until further notice.
And it seems Johannes Vermeer(1632-1675) is the most popular choice, from his Girl with a pearl earring to The Milkmaid all become inspirations of the new artists around the world. The master of light 400 years ago must be amused.
And toilet paper, after playing a dominant role in the stockpile dramas around the world, becomes creative tool for many people while recreating their own masterpieces.
