An ambitious project involving numerous international contemporary artists and disused Military airplanes is set to make it’s debut on January 28th at the Pima Art and Space Museum in Tucson, Arizona.  The Boneyard Project: Return Trip will include artists Andrew Schoultz, How & Nosm, Nunca, Retna, and Faile who will all paint their own individual airplanes, along with cockpit from Saner.  We took a trip to the desert to get you these exclusive preview photos.

 

The concept for resurrecting the no longer active airplanes was conceived in spring 2010 by Eric Firestone, and organized with curator Carlo Mccormick.   Also on display will be previous work from Eric Firestone Gallery’s Nose Job show that took place last year featuring artist such as Aiko, Bast, Crash, Daze, El Mac, Ron English, Shepard Fairey, Futura, Erik Foss, Tara Mcpherson, Richard Prince, Lee Quinones, Kenny Scharf, and many more.  We suggest that if you are near Tuscon to not miss this event!
