The Getty Museum issued a challenge last week to recreate art with things you have at home. The movement has become so popular that outlets from Buzzfeed to Business Insider are talking about the Getty Museum Challenge (which can be followed at #gettymuseumchallenge as well as #betweenartandquarantine), the movement is so big its even gone international. While some people have gotten creative with pets the Center for Child Well-Being decided to stretch our creative muscle by recreating works of art, only using children's toys. We have to admit, we're pretty proud of our efforts!
Here, our team has recreated famed glassblower Dale Chihuly's featured art from the Museum of Glass
What better way to utilize Legos than the recreation of Killer Whale Mockup for Film, "Jaws 2". The staff at the CCWB much prefers our cute lego whale to their original killer whale... it might be in the eyes
What do Lego figurines, a GI Joe, and My Little Ponies Pegasus have in common? Warriors Fight A Wolf by Ernst Alpers, of course!
Lions, and Tigers, and Sloth Bears... Oh My! this recreation of Sloth Bear in a Cage is unBEARably cute!
These two barbie dolls have been turned into Roman Goddesses in Roman Fountain
Some may say, we went for the low hanging fruit with our next selection. However, the "banana art" entitled Comedian was too great an opportunity to pass up to recreate! Especially when you have a whole make-believe kitchen with plastic fruit and vegetables at your disposal!
We hope we get some eggstra credit for attempting to recreate Egg in Spotlight. It's quite eggstraordinary if you ask us!
