Art Appreciation Takes on New Light as People Re-Create Famous Artwork

by | Apr 6, 2020

With museums closed for now, institutions have launched virtual tours and live streams for us to enjoy while we wait for a return to normalcy, reports The Washington Post.

The Post piece added that we reached a new level of art appreciation “when the Getty Museum challenged the Internet to browse its online collection and re-create works of art at home.

“TwitterFacebook and Instagram users rose to the challenge valiantly, using their self-quarantined inventory to whip together bootleg artwork. No household object, or tenant, was spared in the process. Pets, children, cans of tuna, toilet paper and bonsai trees are just some of the tools used to make this magic.”

If you have re-created works of art, Capitol Communicator would love to showcase your work and your talents.  Please share your artwork with Capitol Communicator’s publisher, Paul Duning,  at [email protected].
