When readers cannot see the art in person at museums, it is time to be the art (in their homes). Just what does this mean? Check out VanGoYourself, the app that invites users to "get inside [paintings] ... and discover art in a whole new way." Become the newest subject of Stanley Lench's Woman with Cake or grab some pals for George Romney's The Four Friends. Plenty of other options are also available. In fact, the site features more than 100 paintings found in galleries throughout 15 countries. Recreating a personal version of a famous painting is possible with three easy steps. First, choose a painting. Second, take or upload a picture (readers should note that they will need to provide their name and email to upload). Third, publish the masterpiece for the rest of the world to enjoy. Readers short on inspiration will want to explore the VanGo'd Gallery for some ideas. VanGoYourself is managed by the UK-based arts charity Culture24 and was launched through a collaboration between Europeana Creative and the European Commission, among other partners.
