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.

Neato.

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