The Smithsonian American Art Museum is hosting an exhibit called “The Art of Video Games” and you get to decide which games make the cut. All you need is a valid email address and a few minutes to vote here. Voting is open until April 7, 2011. Here are more details from the press release:
The Smithsonian American Art Museum is inviting the public to help select the video games that will be included in its upcoming exhibition “The Art of Video Games,” which opens in Washington, D.C. March 16, 2012. The exhibition is the first to 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. Chris Melissinos, founder of Past Pixels and collector of video games and gaming systems, is the curator of the exhibition.
This is a very cool exhibit that will help games get more mainstream exposure and respect. I’m all for it!
If you get a chance to vote, I’d love to know which games you selected. Please let me know!
