In response to the challenge initiated by the Getty Museum and the Rijksmuseum, the National Museum in Warsaw has invited the audience to take part in a fun project where you can breathe life into their collection and recreate the works of art at home. The photos have so far exceeded all the expectations - toiler-paper versions of the “Jewess with Oranges”, extraordinary impersonations of Pola Negri and complex compositions with many figures in the picture!
Despite the current difficult situation in Poland and worldwide, it has never been easier to visit faraway museums while sitting comfortably at home. With the use of modern technologies and innovative solutions, we can enjoy art and culture through digital platforms and social media.
If you want to explore a vast collection of Polish and international art from the Middle Ages to modern times - let's do it the fun way!
In order to take part in the challenge, you need to visit Digital MNW - the online collection of the Museum and choose one work of art. On the National Museum in Warsaw's Facebook profile you will find some propositions that might inspire you. Everyday objects, souvenirs and clothes you have at home may become props in your design. Ask your family members to help you make a perfect photo. When you are ready, post your picture on our Facebook or Instagram, tag the profile of the National Museum in Warsaw and add the hashtag #niebawemwMNW (#soonatMNW).
We can't wait to see more! See you #SoonatMNW!
