New Smithsonian Exhibit Focuses on ‘The Art of Video Games’
The Art of Video Games is a new Smithsonian exhibit focusing on the 40-year evolution of video game art, on display at the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington DC, March 16 to September 30:
The Art of Video Games is one of the first exhibitions to explore the forty-year evolution of video games as an artistic medium, with a focus on striking visual effects and the creative use of new technologies. It features some of the most influential artists and designers during five eras of game technology, from early pioneers to contemporary designers.
The exhibition focuses on the interplay of graphics, technology and storytelling through some of the best games for twenty gaming systems ranging from the Atari VCS to the PlayStation 3. Eighty games, selected with the help of the public, demonstrate the evolution of the medium.
Excellent. The exhibit is a must-see when it passes through or near a city near you.
