ARTcade

ARTcade

December 8th – January 30th (closed December 15 – December 22nd)

ARTcade is akin to a traditional arcade, albeit with an artistic twist. Each of the ARTcade games were designed or customized by artists, including pinball tables, claw machines, gashapon-style vending machines, a coin pusher, and more.

Prizes, both in the claw machines and at the redemption booth, are also provided by a collection of talented artists. Examples of prizes include enamel pins, coloring books, miniature paintings, jewelry, tea towels, art prints, small sculptures, apparel, and much more.

ARTcade promises to deliver a fun and friendly experience to lovers of classic arcade games and contemporary art alike. Come and enjoy a one-of-a-kind experience occurring at the intersection of gaming and art. ARTcade is appropriate for all-ages.

Made possible in-part by a generous grant from Bonfils-Stanton Foundation.

A special thanks to Mark Gibson from FunWithPinball.com for helping us repair and maintain the game machines.
