The Philadelphia Museum Of Art Presents A Very Cool Exhibit Featuring Pennsylvania State Finalists In The “Doodle 4 Google” Contest
If you’re a fan of the popular “Doodle 4 Google” project, a contest this past spring in which Google invited students across the U.S. to redesign Google’s iconic homepage logo, you won’t want to miss out on this one.
For the rest of the summer, the Philadelphia Museum of Art will exhibit the ten Pennsylvania winners in the “Doodle 4 Google” contest in the museum’s Education Corridor, alongside three different interactive stations for visitors of all ages.
For the competition, run this past March, students in grades K-12 designed Google Doodles inspired by the theme “If I could travel in time, I’d visit…” The winners were chosen by a team of Googlers and then guest judges, including Katy Perry and Jordin Sparks, helped to choose the top doodles.
The Pennsylvania winning doodle, titled “Traveling to Me,” was created by 10-year old Talia M. of Indiana, PA out of more than 114,000 entries, and depicts a girl diving into a time wormhole interlaced through a brightly colored Google logo.
The overall winner for the contest was second grader Dylan Hoffman of Caledonia, Wisconsin for his sketch “Pirate Times.”
Check out all of the local submissions in this colorful museum exhibit.
