A new and alternative art project is taking place in the desert near Tucson, Arizona: old original WWII aircrafts used as a canvas by a team of highly respected urban artists.
The location of the artistic operation is the Pima Air and Space Museum, the biggest non governamental aviation museum of America.

Created by gallerist Eric Firestone and curator Carlo McCormick (one of the most respected characters of Urban Art ambient), the ” Bone Yard Project ” consists of an initial phase in which the artists worked on the “noses” of the aircrafts and saw the participation of more than 30 international stars from street art. Among them Lady Aiko (from the Faile collective, recently exhibited by Larry Gagosian), Bast, Crash, Daze , Tristan Eaton, El Mac, Ron English, Shepard Fairey – Obey, Futura, Erik Foss, Tara Mcpherson, Mark Kostabi, Sea, Eric White, Richard Prince, Lee Quinones, Judy Supine, Kenny Scharf. Starting from next January 28th the Pime Musuem will exhibit three Super DC-3 aircraft completely transformed into artworks by How & Nosmo, Nunca and Retna, a C97 by Saner and a C45 Cockpit by
