The book “Off the Walls” from the Getty Foundation is a silver lining of creativity born of COVID-19 lockdowns.
I remember watching with awe and sincere respect as people posted photos of themselves, bored in quarantine, recreating famous paintings of the ages. Extra points for those that used rolls of toilet paper!
The Getty Foundation now has it available as a book AND it is not only an amazing display of ingenuity but it supports artists across the United States!
The book is 144 pages with 405 color illustrations – only $14 AND Getty Publications will donate all profits from the sale of this book to Artist Relief, an emergency initiative offering resources to artists across the United States.
You get free domestic shipping in the US if you check a box to sign up for their newsletter (save $8.95).
I just ordered 2 – one for myself and one for my niece and nephews who are budding artists. I think I’ll challenge them to try a recreation of their own! (I’ll share it if they do.)
Thought I’d pass it along in case you are looking for some creative inspiration – for yourself or others.

P.S. If YOU do one of these I’d love to see and share your photo(s) too! LMK!
