The highly anticipated Spirograph National Art Contest comes to an exciting conclusion as artwork submissions by six rising artists have been selected to display at The Strong National Museum of Play on World Art Day! In recognition of their pieces, each artist will also receive an exclusive Spirograph Retrospective Prize Pack and a $400 Michaels Gift Card to keep creating!

“There’s an artist in everybody, and seeing all of these kids and their families celebrate Spirograph® by showing us how they create and bring joy to their artworks is an incredible gift in itself,” says Wendy Hartling, Director of Activity Toys at PlayMonster. “We hope everyone who has joined us for this event continues to be inspired and show their artist side with the spinning gears of Spirograph!”
