Intrepid Museum Camouflage Exhibit | NYC

Above Promotional panel for Masters of Disguise: The World of Camouflage, on view at the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum in NYC through August 24, 2014.


From Mark Yost, "Review of 'Masters of Disguise,' at the Intrepid: An exhibition of camouflage in nature and in wartime" in the Wall Street Journal (March 18, 2014)—

The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum, the historic aircraft carrier moored on Manhattan's West Side, could have taken the easy way out for its latest exhibit on camouflage. It could have pulled photos out of the archives showing ship camouflage in World War I and II—something most people are familiar with—found a nook on the main hangar deck to display them, and been done with it. 

What Eric Boehm, the museum's curator of aviation and aircraft restoration, did instead was give visitors a thorough and engaging history of camouflage in both the natural and the man-made world. >>more>>
