The National Endowment for the Arts has renamed and rebranded its Arts on Radio and Television grants, which will now be called Arts in Media grants: "We'll continue to support television and radio," NEA director of media arts Alyce Myatt explains in a video about the change, "but we're also going to fund content developed for the Web, for theatrical release, for mobile phones, content to be distributed via satellite, and even content for game platforms."
The Art of Video Games exhibition will explore the 40-year evolution of video games as an artistic medium, with a focus on striking visual effects, the creative use of new technologies, and the most influential artists and designers. This website offered participants a chance to vote for 80 games from a pool of 240 proposed choices in various categories, divided by era, game type and platform. Voting took place between February 14, 2011 and April 17, 2011. The exhibition will be on display at the museum from March 16, 2012 through September 30, 2012.
