The Detroit Institute of Arts has remained closed during the coronavirus pandemic, but it has started selling art-inspired face masks for people.

Last week, the museum announced the line of face masks featuring popular works of art.

While the museum is closed, the masks will still ship from a textile plant in the Midwest.

The masks are very popular and could take 3-4 weeks to ship, but they have elastic ear straps, a bendable metal nose bridge and more. They are on sale for $24.95 here.

Mask designs include:

– The Scream by Edvard Munch

– Detroit Industry North Wall by Diego Rivera
– Detroit Industry South Wall by Diego Rivera
– Rounded Flower Bed by Monet
– Starry Night by Van Gogh
– Flowers in a Glass by Rachel Ruysch
– Composition by Piet Mondrian
– Hummingbirds and Orchids by Martin Johnson Heade
– The Great Wave by Katsushika Hokusai
