The Award


The Award


The Art of Creativity Award can be considered a work of art in and of itself. They also happen to double as a kaleidoscope. Each signed piece is meticulously handcrafted by an American artist who has been crafting unique kaleidoscope creations for over the past thirty years. Awards have been specially designed for AOC, making them as original as the awarded winning work. The scopes are made from the finest materials available, including the use of the highest quality first surface mirrors, unusual wood and often adding whimsical lego, tools and other unique objects that can be enjoyed when soaking up all the fanciful images that a kaleidoscope brings to the eye.
