google_miro.jpgToday is Joan Miro’s birthday, and Google’s logo celebrates his art.
Dennis Hwang is a graphic artist who lives in Korea, designs the Google logos on special days and also is google’s international webmaster, esponsible for managing all Google’s international site content.
I wonder how Hwang decides who/what to celebrate?
UPDATE, via Johnny C..: San Jose Mercury News reports:

“The Artists Rights Society, a group that represents the Miro family and more than 40,000 visual artists and their estates, had asked Google to remove the image early this morning. … the family of Joan Miro was upset to discover elements of several works by the Spanish surrealist incorporated into Google’s logo. Google has since taken the logo off its site.”
