Assassin's Creed IV and Destiny lead 2013 Into the Pixel collection

Sixteen piece art exhibition being presented at E3 2013

The Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences (AIAS) and the Entertainment Software Association (ESA) have announced the 16 pieces being presented at the 2013 Into the Pixel collection. The collection will be shown at this year's E3 event in Los Angeles, from June 11-13, 2013.

"The ITP collection is a reflection of the artistry, creativity and vision of this unique industry," said ESA president Michael D. Gallagher. "We are proud to support ITP and to celebrate the creators behind these works."

"Our industry continues to expand with the emergence of compelling content from independent, mobile and free-to-play developers, and the 2013 collection really reflects the incredibly diverse landscape of the interactive community as a whole," said AIAS president Martin Rae. "These pieces run the stylistic gamut, showcasing the varied inspirations of their truly talented creators. Many congratulations to this year's artists and to the tenth anniversary of Into the Pixel!"

"This year's Into the Pixel collection features artists who are working across a remarkable range of genres, drawing inspiration not only from the history of art, but from the history of video games," said Glenn Phillips, principal project specialist and consulting curator, Getty Research Institute. "These works smartly capture the mood, the story, the style, and the energy of the games for which they were created."
