#LOCArcade [INTERACTIVE DISPLAY]
April 6, 2019 @ 10:00 - 16:00 EDT
For one-day only, the Library of Congress will transform with an all-day interactive video game event exploring game sound from 1972 to the present. Taking over Mahogany Row on the first floor of the Thomas Jefferson building, patrons are invited to play, experience, and learn how sound and music influence, change, and heighten the video game and gamer.
At #LOCArcade visitors will have the opportunity to play through forty years of gaming. Engage hands-on with vintage systems like the Pong, Atari Video Computer System 2600 and Nintendo Entertainment Center, and explore new worlds with immersive virtual reality experiences with festival participants Augment VR Arcade and VR Zone DC Arcade. It will be a weekend like no other at the Library… it’s all fun and games.
Presented in cooperation with the Motion Picture, Broadcast, and Recorded Sound Division.
