art
print collection <https://www.videogameartgallery.com/exhibition>
representing work for a number of significant video games (such as
*Kentucky
Route Zero*, *Gardenarium*, *The Witness* and many others). VGA aims
to
continue supporting video game art locally and internationally. The
gallery
is open to the public 5-8pm Wednesdays and 12-5pm Sundays at 2418 W.
