Talk about aesthetic whiplash.
The Canaday Gallery in the Toledo Museum of Art, which most recently was designed to evoke the stately Tuileries Gardens at the Louvre in Paris, now has a completely different look.
The gardens have given way to the video game arcade, with flashing lights and blips, bleeps and bells. The gallery is now the home for The Art of Video Games, a touring exhibit assembled by the Smithsonian American Art Museum.
The show, which opens today and continues through Sept. 28, traces the evolution of video games from the earliest iterations of Pac Man into the newest generation of fantastic storytelling in photorealistic 3-D animation.
