Exhibits by Christopher Selleck, Jonathan Thunder, Robert Dewitt Adams and Elizabeth LaPensee open this week at the Duluth Art Institute.

Aren't video games those things parents are always trying to get their kids to stop playing?

Probably not this one, though.

Inspired by the art of Steven Paul Judd with design and programming by Duluth's Elizabeth LaPensée and music by Trevino Brings Plenty, Invaders for web and mobile is a play on the classic arcade game Space Invaders.  Warriors face off with sprites from Space Invaders, but who are really the "invaders" and who are the "aliens"?
