Works by WKU Professor Part of Exhibit in New York City
Animated works by a Western Kentucky University department head are being used in a traveling exhibit that documents historical events of the Central Intelligence Agency. The 12-film series titled "SPY: The Secret World of Espionage" opened this summer at Discovery Times Square in New York.
The university says animated works by Keith Sylvester are being used to visually explain the attempt to salvage a Soviet nuclear submarine by Howard Hughes' Summa Corp. and Global Marine. Sylvester is head of Western's Department of Architectural and Manufacturing Sciences.
