TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) — A new art exhibit opening at the Toledo Museum of Art is going way beyond water colors, oil paintings and sculptures.

A traveling exhibition from the Smithsonian American Art Museum called The Art of Video Games is making its only stop in Ohio in Toledo.

The show features still images and video footage of 80 games and looks at the artistic side of the games.

The museum says the exhibit shows the change and evolution of art within the games and how artists are using their talent through a relatively new medium.

It also will show interviews with developers and artists, historic game consoles and, yes, there will be a few games to play.

The exhibit runs through Sept. 28.
