Today’s theme for Museum Week 2020 is Culture in Quarantine. We invite you to re-create some paintings or prints from the MAG’s collections using what you can find in your household! This is inspired by the initiative of the Getty Museum.

Don't forget to tag us on Facebook, Twitter @RedDeerMuseum or Instagram @rdmag #MAGsatathome with your creations! We'd love to see them.
