For people with stay-at-home orders shifting to Zoom and other virtual meeting apps, the North Carolina Museum of Art has created a suite of images for use as artistic Zoom backgrounds.

Art from the museum's Italian Altar Piece Gallery and Contemporary Gallery, featuring works by Mickalene Thomas and Lorna Simpson, can be downloaded for free. Choose Monet's peaceful Giverny scene, or a graceful swan by John James Audubon.

Due to its closure during the COVID-19 pandemic, NCMA offers the backdrop images so that all can enjoy the #museumfromhome online and through social media.
