What to do in Oklahoma on June 8, 2012: See the Oklahoma Doodle 4 Google exhibit at the Oklahoma City Museum of Art
Today’s featured event:
After weeks of anticipation, Google announced the winner of its fifth annual Doodle 4 Google contest: second-grader Dylan Hoffman of Caledonia, Wisc. His winning artwork appeared on the Google homepage May 18.
Now, Doodle 4 Google moves on to another exciting part of the contest – the state exhibits. The Oklahoma City Museum of Art, 415 Couch Drive, will showcase 10 state finalists in a special exhibition in Founder’s Hall opening today.
A reception to honor the finalists, including state winner, second-grader Janessa Chastain of Stilwell, is set for 4 to 5 p.m. today. The event is free and open to the public.
The Oklahoma Doodle 4 Google exhibition will remain on view through July 20.
For this year’s Doodle 4 Google contest, Google teamed up with art, science and children’s museums across the country to display the artwork of each state’s finalists. The Oklahoma City Museum of Art joins prestigious institutions — including The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston in Texas; the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego in California; and the National Museum of Play — participating in the contest.
Last month, NewsOK host Angi Bruss sat down with Janessa Chastain; check out the video to hear the state winner talk about her artwork.
