Oh, how we miss afternoons at the museum: strolling through ornate galleries, letting our thoughts wander endlessly and losing track of time in marvellous gift shops. Thankfully, our favourite galleries have gotten crafty with their online art programs. And while nothing can replace the quintessential museum visit, here's how we are getting our art fix from the comfort of our own homes.
THE TOP 3 VIRTUAL GALLERY VISITS
- We love the MoMA's Virtual Views series, including Q&A's with curators and conversations with featured artists.
- Of the Tate Modern's various online art guides, the Wellbeing and Art section is particularly clever (and relevant).
- An audio-visual immersion into Bosch's Garden of Earthly Delights gives a detailed account that- dare we say it?- even a museum visit may not provide.
CRAVING A CRAFTERNOON?
From drawing like Keith Haring to creating a miniature infinity room inspired by Yayoi Kusama, The Broad's Family Art Workshops have got you covered.
This brilliant Dutch Instagram page, where fellow quarantiners share impressions of their favourite artworks, has been a consistent source of entertainment since the first lockdown.
