The Most Meme-able Paintings At The Palmer Museum Of Art
by: Gabriela Stevenson and Carolyn Popescu
In a previous look at Penn State style art, our staff members recreated some of the most famous works of art in the world. This time around we decided to examine the pieces of art on our own campus.
We took to the Palmer Museum of Art, and were pleasantly surprised to find some awesome pieces that related to Penn State students on a personal level. We compiled the best of those art pieces and meme-ed them for your entertainment. Here are the greatest and most meme-worthy paintings at the Palmer Museum of Art.
The Denial of St. Peter
Artist: Attributed to Master Jacomo
Year: c. 1630’s
Sorry Peter, we all know you’re not going to get in.
David with the Head of Goliath
Artist: Girolamo Forabosco
Year: c. 1650-60
Pre-gaming at Penn State is not for the weak of heart. We’ve all had to carry a friend home after the party before the party got too out of hand, though not exactly like David is doing in this painting.

Listen, friend, you’ve got all semester to study. Let’s go to a joust or something.
