    In Fall of 2018, the Flying Heritage & Combat Armor Museum (FHCAM) in Everett, WA expanded its museum with a new, 32,000 sq. ft. hangar containing artifacts and exhibits. As part of the development of the space, FHCAM hired Curious Beast to develop a series of environmental graphics to help bring the hangar to life. FHCAM sought to bring more of a human presence into it's collection of WWII aircraft and tanks, so, after delving into a deep repository of imagery from the War, I utilized images of soldiers, Marines, pilots, and workers to create monumental backdrops for the iconic artifacts.

    Exhibit run: October 2018 – Present
