Burlington City Arts and Champlain College are currently running Game (Life), an exhibition/arcade presenting "Video Games in Contemporary Art", at the Firehouse Gallery in Burlington Vermont. The show features titles from almost a dozen indie designers and artists, allowing visitors to play their games for free.

Some of the displayed games include Jonathan Blow's Braid, Jason Rohrer's Passage, Petri Purho's Crayon Physics, Jenova Chen/Thatgamecompany's Flower, Mark Essen's The Thrill of Combat, Paolo Pedercini 's Faith Fighter, and Jakub Dvorsky/Amanita Design's Machinarium.

Starting this Friday, the gallery and Champlain College will also offer a lecture series with several of the featured artists, like Blow, Rohrer, and Randy Smith (Spider: Secret of Bryce Manor). You can read more information about the presentation schedule and the Game (Life) exhibit, which ends on February 13th, at the Firehouse Gallery's site.
