(The MADE) The great artistic medium of our time is the computer. Going back to the beginning of time, new mediums have arrived and floated the art world and human culture upwards, despite initial questions of artistic merit. Photography, film, audio recordings, neon lights, even soup cans have become iconic media and messages of art. So too, has digital entertainment become an art form. The MADE will strive to elevate the work of thousands to a level at which it can be fully appreciated on A broad scale. The museum’s primary purpose will be to educate the public about the artistry, craftsmanship and inspiration that go into the creation of videogames and digital works of art, such as programatic visual/audio demonstrations.
The Museum of Art and Digital Entertainment (MADE) is a center and museum dedicated to activities that engage participants with all forms of digital art and entertainment.Our core goals are as follows:
A. The preservation of historic artistic works in the digital media.
B. The education of the public in the process of creation for digital works of art and video games.
C. The exhibition and curation of individual artists and creators, their works, and their biographies.
D. All exhibits should be playable: games are to be played, not viewed from afar or watched on video
