Here is a little link about the Smithsonian's traveling exhibit: "The Art of Video Games."
I think this bodes well for those who are adamant that video games are considered art. The article even starts with a diss of Roger Ebert. Its even pretty cool that most of the museums its stopping in are art museums. It kind of looks like a more aesthetically organized version of the CVGA at Umich.
Also, its traveling to the Flint Museum of Art, in October 2014. So class reunion and field trip? Sounds good to me!
