The Spy Museum, in Washington, DC, is the only public museum in the United States solely dedicated to espionage and the only one in the world to provide a global perspective on an all-but-invisible profession.

We worked closely with the museum’s designers on the Cuban Missile Crisis mural, which features a profile image of John F. Kennedy by Yousuf Karsh. The mural is in the Analysis exhibit, and explores how leaders use intelligence. A special scan was made in order to allow for a huge installation of the image.
