As said by a famous American philosopher:

"One second I'm a Koons
Then suddenly the Koons is me
Pop culture was in art
Now, art's in pop culture in me"
Lady Gaga

Much to art lovers’ regret, the COVID-19 pandemic closed museums around the globe. Good news: the Getty Museum has challenged people to recreate famous art pieces using equipment available in their houses.
