Akron Art Museum Looks for Games

February 17, 2019 - 9:20pm

The Akron Art Museum is looking for video games and table top games from developers, students and game-creators for Open World Arcade, a day-long event held at the museum on Saturday, Dec. 7, as part of their "Open World: Video Games and Contemporary Art" exhibition.

Submissions will be accepted from March 15 through June 15. Games can be entered here and will be judged by a panel based on novelty, professional polish, aesthetics, quality of game experience and “wow factor.” Games don’t need to have art-related subject matter or an art theme. 

Selected games will be featured at the Open World Arcade from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The exhibit will open on Oct. 19 and run through Feb. 2, 2020, and will feature paintings, sculptures, animations, video games, video game modifications and artworks in other media.
