It's just to celebrate Michelangelo's birthday. Google actually changes its logo every time there's a special holiday, like Christmas, New Years, etc :)

I can understand Christmas, New year, Easter and mine :p, but Michelangelo :confused: (when is it? I will send him an e-card) :angel:

Google love their tributes to art greats. They've done Picasso, Dali and Andy Warhol previously. I guess Mick's earned his place within that esteemed group. ;)

Does Google have an archive of the logos they've used?

Yup. Some really inspired ideas in amongst the multitude, too. The Dilbert series was a blast.

Thanks, Czar. I like the logo with the pigeons best.

I didn't know there was a Yahoo Group for Google announcements at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/google-friends/

Unfortunately there's no info about the upcoming dance. :(

If you want to tell who the logos are for just put your cursor over the logo. Google always puts alt text with these logos.
