CALENDAR LISTING
INTREPID SEA, AIR & SPACE MUSEUM OPENS
NEW TEMPORARY EXHIBITION EXPLORING
THE ART AND SCIENCE OF CAMOUFLAGE
 

New temporary exhibition "Masters of Disguise: The World of Camouflage," will open to the public on Thursday, March 6 at the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum, located at Pier 86 (46th Street and 12th Avenue) in Manhattan.

For many animals, the ability to hide in plain sight or look like something entirely different is necessary for survival. "Masters of Disguise: The World of Camouflage" will explore the art and science of camouflage in the natural world, as well as many of its cultural adaptations. Using digital imagery, artifacts and interactive elements, visitors will explore color, shade, shapes, and learn how they can fool the eye.

The exhibition will be open to the public through August 24, 2014. Museum members will have the opportunity to preview the exhibit on Wednesday, March 5 during regular museum hours.

The exhibit is free with the price of admission to the museum. For more information, visit www.intrepidmuseum.org.
