KMAC COMES TO ANIMAL CROSSING!

BY KMAC RESIDENT SERVICES


Sometimes it's best to just...get away from it all


KMAC artworks are now available for you to own in Animal Crossing: New Horizons!


Since its launch in mid-March, Animal Crossing: New Horizons has been a worldwide sensation. The life-simulator video game offers the kind of escape for players to build and furnish their own homes, catch bugs and fish, plant beautiful gardens, build a museum from the ground up, and moreall from the comfort of their real-life couches.

And while a recent software update for the game added art galleries to display works by Manet, Vermeer, Caravaggio, and others to the in-game museum (all curated by Blathers the owl, of course), players may be asking: Where’s the contemporary art?

Don’t worry, friendsKMAC is coming to Animal Crossing!


Expand your in-game collection to include contemporary art!

Now, you can own works from KMAC’s collection and past exhibitions (without even spending a single Nook Mile)! Using an online Animal Crossing Pattern Tool, a small group of KMAC staff created a selection of works for you to decorate your homes, create furniture and clothing, or simply display on the ground.

One great thing about KMAC’s collection is that it contains contemporary art as well as American folk art. These artists created objects with materials they had readily available, such as wood, fabric, and clay. The work of Minnie Adkins, Marvin Finn, and Ron Isaacs will feel right at home next to objects you created on your own workbench.



Use KMAC artworks to help craft your perfect home.

We’d love to see how you’re using these designs! Share your screenshots on social media and be sure to tag @kmacmuseum
