Another one for the Art of Games/Games as Art file

The National Endowment for the Arts has now declared video games to be eligible for art grants funding:

Projects may include high profile multi-part or single television and radio programs (documentaries and dramatic narratives); media created for theatrical release; performance programs; artistic segments for use within an existing series; multi-part webisodes; installations; and interactive games. Short films, five minutes and under, will be considered in packages of three or more. (Emphasis mine.)

Also this week, the Smithsonian posted an announcement about its upcoming exhibit on the art of games, planned for next year. (Time for a trip to DC?)

Both very cool things. But mostly, I'm posting about it because I am very amused by the headline on an article about the two announcements:
