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.
