Smithsonian Wants Help Choosing Games For Exhibit

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Smithsonian American Art Museum is asking the public to help select video games that will be included in its first exhibit to explore the art and visual effects of gaming.

The exhibit, “The Art of Video Games,” is scheduled to open in March 2012 with a focus on the evolution of games as an artistic medium over the past 40 years.

The public can vote online through April 7. Voters can choose 80 games from a pool of 240 choices in various categories. The games on the site were chosen for their graphic appeal, artistic intent and innovative game designs. Results will be posted in May.

The winning games will be displayed at the museum next year as screen shots or short video clips.

    Good job posting a link to the voting site. This was totally not transcribed from a broadcast. Who says print and video media is dead?
