Print this article Video games can often be overlooked in terms of artistic value, but the Smithsonian American Art Museum is looking to change all that. From March 16 to September 30, 2012, the museum will host The Art of Video Games exhibit, one of the first of its kind to champion the striking visual qualities of some of the world's most famous titles.
According to the Smithsonian's website, the exhibition will feature 80 different games in both still images and video. The arrangement will also include video interviews with developers of some of the industry's finest as well as large screen shots of other gems.
Additionally, it turns out that five games will be available to play firsthand. The titles span generations and range from the one that started it all - "Pac-Man" - to the wildly popular "World of Warcraft."
The creators of the exhibit are also open to suggestions as the Smithsonian has made online voting available to fans, who can choose which games they'd like to see, whether it be "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2" or "Grand Theft Auto: Vice City."
