Via a recent email update, it has been revealed that the Smithsonian American Art Museum’s exhibit The Art of Video Games will include original concept art from the games featured. While the email doesn’t reveal much, it DOES feature a piece of original Sonic concept art showing off the interior of a blimp which I assume to be Flying Battery Zone. If that’s what they’re teasing, who knows what other pieces of SEGA art will appear! Shenmue, Panzer Dragoon and Phantasy Star are just some of the other SEGA franchises in the exhibition. Fingers crossed for some more original SEGA art! The exhibit opens in Washington, D.C. on March 16, 2012. I’m planning on going, who else is?
