The J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles wants you to remain inspired by art even during your time in self-isolation. So, on March 25, the museum sent out a tweet asking individuals to recreate their favorite works of art using everyday household items. And people have stepped up to the challenge.
We challenge you to recreate a work of art with objects (and people) in your home.
🥇 Choose your favorite artwork
🥈 Find three things lying around your house⠀
🥉 Recreate the artwork with those items
And share with us. pic.twitter.com/9BNq35HY2V

Items like toilet paper, coffee filters, children’s toys, and even breakfast toast have been used to recreate the masterpieces of Cezanne, Vermeer, Dalí, Picasso, and more. The museum has received thousands of unique submissions so far, and given the immense boredom that has gripped the nation, can probably expect thousands more.
