Experience “The Art of Video Games” near Willoughby at Norfolk’s Chrysler Museum of Art

February 12, 2015 3:31 pm

Video games can be more than just a way to pass the time. They're also often interactive artworks which invite players to tinker with cleverly-designed virtual worlds in ways that only the advent of computers made possible. In fact, even the earliest computers drew programmers to create and play games, like a 1958 "Tennis for Two" game played on an oscilloscope at Brookhaven National Laboratory.

If you'd like to learn more interactive art, one of the most well-received exhibitions of video games is coming to Norfolk's Chrysler Museum of Art beginning on February 14: "The Art of Video Games." Although this exhibition takes place in a museum, it attempts to capture the spirit of interactive art by inviting visitors to play games in a working arcade which will trace how video games advanced from the time of Space Invaders and Pong up through innovative recent games like Flower.

To celebrate the opening of the exhibition, the Chrysler Museum will host a preview party on February 13 from 6 until 10 p.m. The exhibit itself will open on February 14 and runs through May 10. Admission to the museum is free, and if you'd like to attend. the preview party, tickets cost $10 apiece.
