Overview: As video games have grown to become one of the most exciting, vibrant, and often used forms of media on the planet, a few questions still persist. Are games art? Are they more than a trivial activity? Can they teach? In this session you will hear how the Smithsonian American Art Museum is using ARGs and other games to engage patrons and how the forthcoming Art of Video Games exhibition was started, its goals and what it means for establishing the validity of video game culture.
