10 Funniest Photos of People Turning Themselves Into Art
Blame it on the quarantine.
(SPOT.ph) For weeks now, most of us have been doing things that we wouldn't do pre-quarantine—from committing to daily workout sessions via a YouTube channel to signing up for an online class about a really obscure topic. Others have been recreating art pieces; not with a paintbrush and a canvas, but with their own bodies, their pets, and whatever else they can find in their cupboards. If you've been seeing these images floating around online, it's because the Getty Museum in Los Angeles started a challenge: "Recreate a work of art with objects (and people) in your home."
The museum also encourages people to check out their online collection, which features Neolithic clay figurines dating all the way to the sixth millennium B.C., over 400 European paintings from before 1900, and drawings inked between the 15th and 19th centuries. Challenge-takers recreated the work of their choice with things they had lying around the house—pets included. And they delivered!
Check out some of the most hilarious submissions that we saw for the #GettyMuseumChallenge:
The challenge did say to use things lying around. Lots of toilet paper, of course!
