The World of Camoufalge   Masters of Disguise: The World of Camouflage

Extended: Now Open through February 24, 2015
Location: Michael Stern Gallery on the hangar deck

Why is a squirrel gray? Why do some bugs look like sticks? The answer to these questions is camouflage. For many animals, being able to hide in plain sight or look like something entirely different is a necessity of survival. This exhibit explores the art and science of camouflage in the natural world as well as its cultural adaptations. Using digital imagery, artifacts, and interactive elements, visitors will explore color, shade and shapes, and learn how they can fool the eye. Exhibition is free with Museum admission.
