Warning Shot

If you're an aviation enthusiast and you've been to Tucson, Ariz., there's a good chance you've visited the Pima Air & Space Museum, one of the country's best collections of mothballed and vintage airplanes.

But unless you've been in the last week, you haven't seen the exhibition of planes in the collection that have been re-imagined by a group of contemporary artists. Until May 31, the "Round Trip: Art from the Boneyard Project" exhibition is on display at the museum, and if you have a chance, you might well want to make the trip.

As part of the exhibit, artist painted five of the collection's planes, as well as two partial cockpits. And, the show also includes a much broader set of nose cones and tails from a previous exhibition.

This is "Warning Shot," by Retna. It is a DC3 that has been painted with ink and latex.
