Is this art?

Listen

pacman.jpgThere is no debating that video games are significant as pop culture, but do they deserve to be considered art? "The Art of Video Games" -- a show on now at the Smithsonian American Art Museum -- throws the weight of a major art institution behind the answer, yes. (Hear guest curator Chris Melissinos elaborate on that in his conversation with Jian.)

And weigh in here:

Do you think video games can be art? Has a video game ever moved you, or illuminated something for you, in the way great works of art do? Should kids be encouraged to spend more time engaging with the art of video games?
