Explore: Open World: Video Games & Contemporary Art
The cultural reach of video games seems to be everywhere these days, affecting movies, TV and music. Video games influence contemporary artists too. Join Curator of Exhibitions Theresa Bembnister to learn how some of the most beloved video game franchises—Super Mario Bros., The Legend of Zelda and The Sims, among others—inspire the artists in Open World.
