You may have noticed that the logo on the Google search homepage changes for holidays. Normally these festive variations are created by an in-house team of professional illustrators, graphic designers, animators, artists, and engineers. But since 2008, Google has been running an annual competition, Doodle 4 Google, to encourage K-12 American school kids to create their own Google logos.
The competition is intended to encourage creativity in students, and Google provides a theme each year, intended to spark the contestants curiosity and fire their imaginations.
Rightview International Children’s Gallery (RICG) is showcasing 100 pieces of Doodle 4 Google art at their exhibition space in Zhongguancun. The exhibition opened on September 6, will run until October 15, and is open from 10am-5pm daily. For more information, contact Susan (153 2127 1848, firstname.lastname@example.org)
The Rightview International Children’s Gallery is on the second floor of 1-A Xinke Xiangyuan, in Haidian; diagonally opposite the Sohu Media Building on the 4th North Ring Road. (北京市海淀区新科祥园). For those traveling on public transport, it’s best accessed from Subway Line 4 at Zhongguancun Station.
RICG aims to exhibit and exchange children drawings between China and the rest of the world. The Doodle 4 Google exhibition is the first in a series of planned exchanges of children’s creative drawings from across the globe.
