Phoenix Art Museum to Feature Artcade Show Games in July

Fans of joystick-powered pixelated entertainment across the Valley are probably counting the hours until The Art of Video Games finally opens at the Phoenix Art Museum June 16. And you can't blame them, considering the three-month exhibition will showcase (and offer the chance to play) some of the greatest hits in gaming history, ranging from the practically pre-historic Pac-Man to modern-day blockbusters like Mass Effect.

And starting in late July, the exhibition will include access to the custom-decorated vintage and old school quarter-eaters from the popular Artcade Show.
