The Smithsonian to exhibit four decades of videogame art

Those that live in DC, near the US capital or who just fancy a road trip, will be pleased to know that the Smithsonian American Art Museum plans to host an Art of Video Games exhibit.

The game-themed showcase will “show the development of visual effects and aesthetics during four decades” of vidoegames.


Bad news though – it won’t hit the museum until 2012. The world ends that year, ya know.

More through Joystiq.

    It probably isn’t going to include the art that I wish to see, such as fatality screenshots from the Mortal Kombat series or chainsawings from Gears Of War or the evolution of breast physics from games like Soul Edge/Calibur and Tekken.
