The Smithsonian Institution, in its decision to explore videogames as an expression of art, took votes from people in over a hundred countries to decide which games will debut in their upcoming The Art of Video Games exhibit. One of the games chosen was our beloved StarCraft.
The Art of Video Games is one of the first exhibitions to explore the forty-year evolution of video games as an artistic medium, with a focus on striking visual effects and the creative use of new technologies. It features some of the most influential artists and designers during five eras of game technology, from early pioneers to contemporary designers. The exhibition focuses on the interplay of graphics, technology and storytelling through some of the best games for twenty gaming systems ranging from the Atari VCS to the PlayStation 3.
The Smithsonian website has the tour dates of the exhibit, a list of the featured games, and a description of the exhibit, so be sure to check those out if you are interested.
