Skillshot: The Collaborative Art of Pinball

September 6 - November 5, 2016
Opening reception and catalog release party: September 23, 6-9 p.m.

Skillshot: The Collaborative Art of Pinball presents pinball machines as interactive artworks that are created through a collaborative process involving many skilled artisans such as designers, sculptors and engineers. Chicago is the birthplace and world headquarters of pinball, making Columbia College, in the heart of the city, an exciting place to debut the first-ever exhibition to explore the complicated collaborations inherent in creating pinball machines. Skillshot intends to capture the spirit and momentum of this dynamic art movement by highlighting the accomplishments of both industry professionals and enthusiasts. The exhibit features pinball machines, documentary videos, zines as well as original pre-production illustrations and sketches by iconic pinball designers and illustrators. This exhibition is held in conjunction with GAME ART VS. ART GAME held at The Arcade.
