The Smithsonian American Art Museum’s annual “SAAM Arcade” highlights the groundbreaking work of video game developers and emphasizes the connection between technology, art, and American culture.
In 2019, games are for everyone. From storytelling and art to education and brand engagement, the Smithsonian American Art Museum curates a family friendly, inclusive experience to deliver this message.
Video games are a part of our visual culture and worthy of display as well as study at SAAM,” said Stephanie Stebich, The Margaret and Terry Stent Director of the Smithsonian American Art Museum.
Whether a visitor is looking in awe at a great landscape painting or soaring over a virtual landscape with the aid of a VR headset, we believe art is powerful when it invites excitement, conversation, and curiosity!
