The Most Meme-able Paintings At The Palmer Museum Of Art: Round Two

Last year, we went exploring through the Palmer Museum of Art for the most meme-worthy paintings we could find. We were pleasantly surprised to find plenty of pieces that seemed to reflect student life at Penn State.

2017 has already been a year of hilarious memes, so we went back to the Palmer Museum and created more Penn State-style memes to keep up with the times. All of the art you see in this round is displayed in the upstairs section of the museum.

Here’s the second round of the most meme-able paintings (and one sculpture) at the Palmer Museum of Art.
