Following our earlier coverage (Part 1 & Part 2) of the Boneyard Project: Return Trip, we present the following photos of work previously unfinished on our last trip to Tucson. Artists Bast and Andrew Schoultz were weeks into their metal canvases, and we caught up with them as they finished. In addition to the airplanes, a variety of Nose Cones made their way inside the Pima: Air & Space Museum showcasing a range of styles from numerous international artists. Dj’s, bands, and an enthusiastic crowd came out to celebrate this special event held in a rather unique environment. The show runs until May 31st 2012 if you find yourself in Tucson, Az and is highly recommended.
The concept for resurrecting the no longer active airplanes was conceived in spring 2010 by Eric Firestone and Med, and organized with curator Carlo Mccormick. Artists Andrew Schoultz, How & Nosm, Nunca, Retna, and Faile all painted their own individual airplanes, along with cockpits from Saner and Bast. Also on display is previous work from Eric Firestone Gallery’s Nose Job show that took place last year featuring artists such as Aiko, Bast, Crash, Daze, El Mac, Ron English, Daniel Diaz, Shepard Fairey, Futura, Erik Foss, Ryan Wallace, Judith Supine, El Mac, Tara Mcpherson, Richard Prince, Lee Quinones, Dan Colen, Kenny Scharf, and many more.
