The Art of Video Games
Smithsonian exhibition includes TRON

Quote:
The Art of Video Games is one of the first exhibitions to explore the forty-year evolution of video games as an artistic medium, with a focus on striking visual effects and the creative use of new technologies.

I couldn't find any mention of this, although it felt familiar, like maybe it was discussed in another context.

Scroll down and you'll see listed:

Intellivision
TRON: Maze‐Atron

It's a little thing, I know, but thought you'd enjoy it.

The exhibit opened today at the Smithsonian American Art Museum,
runs March 16, 2012 September 30, 2012
and will tour various U.S. cities after that.

(oh now I remember, there was a big discussion over on the Cyan forums about how Myst will be included as a playable exhibit.)

Cool! Altho I'd have to normally wait until 2015 to see it locally...I'll be able to see it when I visit DC this summer! Awesome!
