Art and Industries building of the Smithsonian
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Video games are getting some respect. The Smithsonian American Art Museum is planning its first major exhibit exploring the art and evolution of video games.
"The Art of Video Games" opens March 16th at the museum in Washington. The graphics, technology and storytelling of some of the best games will be highlighted. Dozens of games were chosen with the help of an online vote last year.
The exhibit will go on a national tour after closing in Washington in September.
