The Ten Best Golden Girls Artworks

The Golden Girls has been off the air since 1992, but this show about four women in their golden years remains fresh as ever. All that sharp, sassy, and sometimes crass as hell comedy keeps delighting audiences through reruns on TVLand, Hallmark, and YouTube. And as fictional residents of Miami, they hold a special place in our hearts.

Sophia, Dorothy, Blanche and Rose have inspired memes, Halloween costumes, endless swag, and even baby names. Some more creative fans, however, are determined to keep these besties alive through their art. From depraved depictions to cutesy tributes, here’s a collection of the most memorable artwork inspired by the iconic confidants.
