Walker Art Center gets a shout-out as Google reveals its new logo


If you've "Googled" something today, you'll have noticed a pretty momentous change.

The search engine giant has unveiled its new, "uncluttered," sans-serif logo that it says on its blog is designed to work better for all the different screen sizes used to access it, as opposed to the previous design that was intended for desktop PCs.

So far, so technical. To see the evolution of the Google logo and how it arrived at its new design, you can check out the video below which, notably for Minnesota, mentions the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis.


Showing the search page's new look for its voice-command service on cellphones, Google uses an example of how it looks when you tell your phone to "call the Walker Art Center."

Needless to say, officials at the museum were pretty darn pleased with the mention...

The museum's fans on Twitter were also happy with the name-check.
