Bangor, Maine-May 22, 2012
– Maine Discovery Museum today announced that it will exhibit the Maine Doodle 4 Google™ 2012 finalists until August 2012 in the first floor Main Street Gallery. Entries were submitted from all across Maine and these finalists represent the top submissions in each age group.
The exhibit is open to the public and will be the museums highlight during the Downtown Bangor Art Collaboratives June 15 Art Walk. Finalists range in age from 9-17 from cities and towns across the state.
“The Maine Discovery Museum is pleased to be the only location in Maine to be featuring the work of these students. The creativity and artistic talent shown by Maine school children is outstanding and we want to help nurture and recognize that. We are grateful to Google for organizing this nationwide program, and proud of Maine's entries and the creativity among our youth in the state”-Niles Parker, Executive Director at MDM.
Doodle 4 Google is one of several efforts by Google to encourage and celebrate the creativity of young people by asking students to create their own Google doodle. The theme this year was “If I could travel in time, I’d visit...” Doodle 4 Google gives students a blank canvas to harness their curiosity and imagine the past, present, and/or future anywhere in the world. The doodles were judged by a team of Googlers and then guest judges -- such as Katy Perry, Phineas and Ferb creator and executive producer Jeff “Swampy” Marsh, and recording artist Jordin Sparks -- helped choose the top doodles.
