Fit & Fun

On Friday, EMP will host “Game Nite” to celebrate the opening of “The Art of Video Games” exhibit from the Smithsonian American Art Museum.

The event will feature tournament-style gaming on a massive screen inside EMP’s Sky Church section. And those who want to exercise more than their thumbs can hop on Kinect’s Dance Central game.

The exhibit, which explores the 40-year evolution of video games, focuses on innovation from influential artists, designers and other creative minds.

Unlimited Digital Access. $1 for 4 weeks.

On opening night, guests can play video games spanning five eras, from the Atari 2600 to the Nintendo Entertainment System to the Microsoft Xbox 360. Leading innovators will speak.

Admission is $15 for the general public, $5 for youths between 5 and 12, and free to EMP members.
