Gamescape, a visual arts exhibition showcasing video games, is currently open for submissions. With the return of video games to Artscape in Baltimore City, we aim to have developers & designers showcase and promote games that they have created.
This exhibition will include classic arcade machines, video game demos, and panels on game development and design, and a costume component. It will open on July 15, 2016 and run through the duration of Artscape: Friday, July 15 through Sunday. July 17, 2016.
Developers are encouraged to submit games for any platform, as long as they are able to provide the equipment necessary to demo the game themselves. Submissions will be reviewed by curator Ben Walsh.
Storytelling, good drawing skills, animation, 3D modeling and the art of conceiving ideas are important to the gaming field. While video games are a blend of art and technology, it’s the art that is at the forefront. With it, game developers tell stories that illicit such emotions as joy, satisfaction, and horror; creating an experience that can be both entertaining and enlightening.
Gamescape is a program of the Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts (BOPA). Artscape is produced by the Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts, Inc. on behalf of the Baltimore Festival of the Arts, Inc. Artscape is America’s largest free public arts festival featuring 150+ artists, fashion designers, and craftspeople.
