Tomorrow is the first day of PAX East — so let's close the books on a previous video game event!
Last month, I had the pleasure of attending GameFest, the opening weekend of The Art of Video Games exhibition at the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington, DC. I pitched PCWorld, inheritors to the former GamePro magazine, to cover the story, which normally would've been an uphill battle. Fortunately, I had a connection: I'm already an employee of their parent company. They were happy to run my feature story, "Smithsonian Art Of Video Games Exhibit Opens With Gaming Festival", for which the editor asked I focus on two panels that examined the history and future of gaming.
In addition to text for PCWorld, I also published a GameFest photo gallery with Computerworld. What follows are the remainder of the still photography assets I grabbed during my weekend at the Smithsonian. Enjoy!
