2012 may bring us the apocalypse, but it may also bring us a great new exhibition on the art of video games.  That’s right.  The Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C. is planning an exhibition called “The Art of Video Games” for their American Art Museum.  Set to open on March 16, 2012, the exhibition will display the evolution of video games as an artistic medium over the past 40 years.  “The Art of Video Games” plans to focus on striking visual effects, creative technology, and influential video game designers.
