Ralph Baer Day 2019 is a multimedia art exhibition at Jupiter Hall that honors the legacy of Ralph Baer, the “Father of Video Games.” Ralph Baer Day 2019 features a 15 foot interactive video game, the Baer Project Ping Pong installation.
A former Manchester resident, Ralph Baer invented the first video game console and held over 150 patents on games, devices, and other technology like SIMON and the light gun (used to play Duck Hunt). Baer was an inventor and creator throughout his life, and while he didn’t necessarily want honors, he did want to inspire others to make things and play.
Ralph Baer’s inventions are a work of art that have inspired so many more creators. This exhibit of video game inspired art will serve as a reminder of the impact Ralph had on the lives of all.
All funds raised from donations and from purchasing game-related artwork on display during Ralph Baer Day 2019 will benefit the Baer Square Project, a commemorative square featuring a bench with a seated statue of Ralph Baer.
