Every museum should have a home. Every museum that deals with the hobby we are most passionate about should have a home, yesterday. The Museum of Art and Digital Entertainment (MADE) is currently looking for a location in San Francisco. They have started using Kickstarter to drum up funding for the organization’s goal of $20,000. Your donation gets you a ticket to the museum when it opens, and larger donations can get you signed memorabilia and your name on the wall of the building.
MADE is “dedicated to the preservation of video games, and the presentation of games as art.” Sounds like a worthy cause to me, and it would be nice to see games continued to be promoted as an art form. Plus, those old game collections in our closets aren’t exactly the best means of preserving the history of the industry.
