The Boneyard Project: Art on Abandoned Airplanes

The Boneyard Project is an art exhibition of scrapped military aircraft that have been repurposed as canvases for contemporary artists. The project involves making decorative paintings on the fuselage of World War II era military aircraft that lie abandoned in the infamous “Boneyard” in the Arizona desert. The idea was first conceived by Eric Firestone and organized by curator Carlo McCormick in 2010. Firestone’s concept has since evolved into a larger goal in which various international contemporary artists are set to redesign the entirety of old, out-of-use military planes.
