If you've ever wanted to have the Des Moines Art Center all to yourself, Mondays are your chance.

Driving the news: The art center is reintroducing a program called "My Museum Monday," which allows members up to three hours of private time, while it's closed to the public.

The intrigue: It's an opportunity to get creative. Dress like your favorite painting or do tai chi among the art.

My thought bubble: If I was alone, I would have a few words with this Francis Bacon painting that scared me as a kid.

How to do it: Become a member of the Des Moines Art Center and apply for the program here.
