Legendary music critic Roger Ebert once wrote that, “I remain convinced that in principle, video games cannot be art.” This month, the University of Michigan Library Computer and Video Game Archive will put that to the test with Winteractive: The Art of Video Games. The exhibition features games strictly from indie and small developers that blur the line between entertainment and art. The exhibition is hands-on experience, so visitors are welcome to test out games that get creative with sound and beauty and push the boundaries of what video games can be. Runs until Friday, April 15.
