MADE attempts to raise money for facility
on Wednesday,February 16,2011 20:02
Many people underestimate the effort and details that go into creating video games, but one nonprofit group in San Francisco, California, is working to raise awareness of the industry.
Recently, the Museum of Art and Digital Entertainment (MADE) announced efforts to raise money for the creation of a small facility to showcase video games and the art behind the animation, according to Gamasutra, a gaming industry news site. The group has set a goal to gather $20,000 over the next two months to cover the amount needed to rent a 1,000-square-foot location for its collection.
"There are already world-class videogame museums in New York, Germany, and Italy," Alex Handy, MADE director, told the news source. "It's time we got started building such an establishment here, in the San Francisco Bay Area. Despite the claims of some, videogames are undeniably art."
MADE will have a booth at the upcoming Game Developers Conference to raise awareness for their cause. Visitors will be able to play classic video games provided by the nonprofit group.
As video games become a popularized form of art, more individuals are considering careers in the industry. Employment of multimedia artists and animators in this field is expected to increase by 14 percent over the next seven years, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
