The Rochester Museum of Fine Arts, in collaboration Jetpack Comics, is pleased to announce a Centipede high score contest to coincide with a digital art exhibit celebrating Atari’s 50th Anniversary.

Founded in 1972, Atari played an integral role in the development of the arcade game, home console, and personal computer industries. Atari’s iconic games, including Pong, Asteroids, Centipede, and Missile Command, have been played by millions around the world. The brand continues to bring joy to gamers with its expanding portfolio of PC, console, and mobile games.

The Centipede high score contest will be held on January 14th from 10am-4pm. The top 3 high score players will receive prize packages that include an assortment of items and a $25 gift certificate to Jetpack. There is no cost to enter. An authentic Atari 2600 will be used.

The RMFA is located within the James W. Foley Memorial Community Center, 150 Wakefield Street, Rochester, NH, behind Spaulding High School. Suite 135 is open Monday through Friday from 9am to 4pm. Visit www.rochestermfa.org to learn more.
