Screen Shot 2014-09-12 at 9.09.10 AM

If you remember the good old days of playing arcade games (Mortal Kombat, Space Invaders, Pac-Man, whatever-else-you-loved), you’re going to want to check out Dream Arcade at Light Grey Art Lab. The pixel art exhibition features brand new arcade-style landscapes created by 30 artists and designers from around the world. Not only that, but all the works will function as interactive and playable worlds, so each artist has basically created a brand new arcade game (how cool is that?). Like any good arcade game, you’ll be solving puzzles, fighting enemies, finding secret pathways, and so much more—all in brand new world’s you’ve never seen before. Light Grey will basically be transformed into a mini arcade for the life of the exhibit, so check it out and try for the highest score. Friday, 7 p.m. Free. —EDJ
