My hometown Vienna/Wien is on the forefront of using A.I. Spin-Offs of world-famous artworks to entice people to go and see the real thing…..an unusual and aggressive approach to bringing art to the public ——and Vienna is well equipped to do this with over 100 museums.
The Vienna Tourist Board campaign tactfully explains what their goal is and that the original artworks made this humorous approach possible together with A.I. technology.
Here is the link to an article on Artnet News that explains more about this endeavor.
