Exhibit Brings Video Games to New Level: Art

“The Art of Video Games” at the Smithsonian American Art Museum is one of the first exhibitions to explore the 40-year evolution of video games as an artistic medium. Featuring 80 games and 20 video games systems, starting with the Atari VCS in 1976 and ending with today’s Sony PlayStation 3, the exhibit walks through the tremendous advances in design, technology and storytelling.
