INTO THE PIXEL is the the world’s only art exhibition that brings together both fine artists as well as experts in the interactive entertainment industry to explore the art of the video game. The 2009 collection is now on display at the Hotel des Arts in San Francisco. This is actually the 7th year for Into the Pixel, and its continued success is in no doubt due to the opportunity it gives for published computer and video game artists to be recognized by renowned fine art experts, and the public too. In total, only 16 pieces are selected by a jury to be hung in the ITP gallery which then travels around the U.S. and the world. For those lucky enough to check out the exhibit in San Francisco, the collection will be on display through April. In addition to the Into the Pixel exhibition on the main floor of the Hotel des Arts, all five floors of San Francisco’s ‘Art Hotel’ will also be filled with artwork ‘from and inspired by video games’.
