The Princeton University Art Museum is hosting a Museum Challenge with entries open through Sunday, August 30. It’s fun and easy.

Choose any artwork, from the Princeton University Art Museum’s collections, or from another museum, and re-create it at home using anything on hand, the more imaginative the better. Think dogs with books, a ketchup bottle standing in for wine, a bathrobe in place of a cape. Then simply snap a photo and submit your entry, through the museum’s website, artmuseum.princeton.edu/nss. Categories include Best Use of Food, Best Use of a Pet, Best Landscape, Best Still Life, Best Portrait, 13-and-under Best in Show, and others.

Winners will be announced during the Museum’s Nassau Street Sampler Virtual Festival on Thursday, September 3. The Fest will include online loteria, trivia, art-making, chef videos, student performances, and a virtual dance party.
