Now You Can Take A Jay-Z And Beyoncé Tour At The Louvre

A few weeks ago I was in Paris and visited the Louvre. Over the course of four hours, a guy named Jeremy, who has a masters in art history from some fancy university, took a small group of us around to see some of the museum’s highlights. What I didn’t realise was that if we had moved our trip just a few weeks later, we would have been able to see JAY-Z and Beyoncé’s museum highlights instead.

The Art Institute of Chicago recently revamped its website and released a searchable database of high-resolution art. Even better, a lot of the art is in the public domain, meaning you can legally use it however you want, even for commercial purposes. </p> <p>(Check the copyright notice on each artwork’s page.) You’ll notice that while you can zoom in on most of the artworks, only the public-domain art will include a full-resolution download link.

The iconic couple shot the video for their song “Apeshit” at the museum, which has prompted the Louvre to offer an Apeshit-themed visitor trail, where you can take a journey through all of the art pieces featured in the video and take a selfie of yourself in front of each one.

If you live in a hole and aren’t familiar with the video (I wasn’t), you can see it here.

The 90-minute tour is offered at the museum on Wednesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays, and Sundays.

And the duo actually aren’t the only musical artists to have their own tour. The museum also offers a will.i.am. tour of the space, as well as a Da Vinci Code tour. All three “Visitor Trails” are self-guided and take around an hour and a half to complete.

And if all that sounds a bit much, I highly recommend giving Jeremy a call. He really knows his stuff.
