Smithsonian To Feature Video Game History
RedEaredSlider writes “The Smithsonian American Art Museum has featured everything pop culture from Dorothy’s ruby red slippers to Seinfeld’s puffy shirt. Now it will exhibit a history of video games. An exhibit called ‘The Art of Video Games,’ will open to the public in Washington, DC on March 16, 2012. The exhibit will explore the 40-year evolution of video games as an artistic medium, with a focus on striking visual effects and the creative use of new technologies.” They’re currently holding a vote to determine which video games should represent their respective eras.
