Art is part of Cultural Heritage that we have to keep over time. Many initiatives are proliferating all over the world to encourage new generations to take an interest in art and, above all, to preserve it. the United Kingdom, in the project context Europeana (a digital platform to promote artistic cultural heritage), the association Culture 24 launched the project "VanGoYourself". The principle is simple: Internet users have access to an online platform where they are invited to reproduce with personal photos famous paintings.
In the manner of a challenge, the site "VanGoYourself" therefore invites the curious to reinvent a famous painting among a choice of 100 paintings. Each work is labeled according to specific criteria (for example, you can choose an easy to reproduce painting). The different reinterpretations are then published on the platform to motivate new participations.
An excellent project that aims to revalorize the artistic cultural heritage thanks to a fun and motivating challenge. Here, no particular skill is required, just a camera, a little imagination and especially a few models. We suggest you discover below a selection of revisited paintings. To learn more about the project, visit the site of the device "VanGoYourself".
