Thirty-one illustrators participate in this collective work; most of them are young professionals at the start of their careers. Each one of them were asked to select two works by any artist, and create their own version, using only two colours. Later, we showcased these new images to a group of children between the ages of 6 and 12, and since it was an interesting experience, we decided to include their opinions and commentaries.
Media Vaca Museum is a collective work in which thirty-one illustrators participate; most of them are young professionals at the start of their career. Each of them were asked to chose a work from any artist and time period (those they considered their favourite), and create their own version in a specific format using only two colours. Later, we showcased these new images to a group of children between the ages of 6 and 12, who generously shared their interesting opinions and hilarious comments.
The result is a somewhat crazy collection of images and stories which aim to draw attention to museums and spark curiosity about the works of art that are displayed in them. Museums are, in general, not very frequented; and yet, they can provide us with as good a time as a trip to the countryside to breathe the fresh air.
