When a CIA project or mission becomes declassified, the artistic community often jumps at the chance to work with the juicy details. Sometimes these former agency secrets inspire books or movies (like Argo), but it’s relatively rare for the information itself to be the art. Well, a new exhibit at the Southern Museum of Flight is changing that.
The Alabama museum recently unveiled “Shadow Gallery, The Art of Intelligence,” a 16-piece exhibit featuring reproductions of formerly classified CIA artwork (the originals remain in an off-limits gallery at CIA headquarters). The prints offer an intimate look at some of the CIA’s most famed missions, including the failed Bay of Pigs invasion. Check out this great article on the Associated Press website.
