Art Everywhere!

Google search often features special drawings and graphics celebrating important people and events in history.  On May 2, the Google Search page was redesigned and dedicated to Indian filmmaker Satyajit Ray. (see an article about it here!)  
According to this wikipedia entry, Satyajit Ray "directed 36 films, including feature films, documentaries, and shorts.  He was also a fiction writer, publisher, illustrator, calligrapher, graphic designer and film critic.  He authored several short stories and novels, primarily aimed at children and adolescents"

Pretty cool! Have you seen any of his movies?  Google has millions of people to choose from to honor, and chose to celebrate and remember this man's birthday.  The legacy of a creative mind often lives on long after they have gone. We have learned this year about the lasting influences of Picasso, Warhol, Monet and many more.... 

Keep your eyes open for historic artists all around you every day!
