Culture in Quarantine: Museum Week 2020

It’s #MuseumWeek2020, where cultural organizations all around the world play together on social media! Today’s theme, inspired by the Getty Museum’s challenge to recreate works of art at home, is #CultureInQuarantineMW. Below we’ve highlighted some suggestions from our collection that we think might be fun to recreate, but there are (literally) thousands more images in our collections that you can search through for inspiration here.

We are really excited to see what creative, beautiful, zany, and unexpected pictures you come up with, so be sure to share in the comments here, or on social media (FacebookTwitterInstagram, or Tumblr) using the hashtag #CultureInQuarantineMW. Be sure to tag us so we can “ooh” and “ahh” over your creations!
