MotoArt added a few new names to our Corsair propeller sculpture at the Museum of Flying fund raiser at Santa Monica airport last week. One of our newly treasured signatures really hit home, as Louis Zamperini was more than happy to add his name. MotoArt’s home base airport in Torrance was renamed Zamperini Airfield in his honor. Lucky Louie has a incredible story from his 1936 Berlin Olympic efforts and being a World War II POW and spending a harrowing 47 days at sea. We are also thrilled to have this piece signed by four of the surviving Tuskegee airman.
MotoArt and Gore Design (www.goredesign.com) of San Antonio, TX have contracted to rescue and build a historical airframe into a new corporate conference table that was destined to be scrapped forever. This 1931 WACO wing was found in Idaho and brought to our Los Angeles studio to undergo a complete restoration into a 20' long exquisite conference table.
MotoArt opened its doors on May 1st for the Hot to Trot event sponsored by Aim High Events. The party included a colorful array of pin-up girls, World War II aircraft, vintage cars and celebrities. The MotoArt bone yard was filled to capacity as we parked a B-25 Bomber, Corsair, P-38, and a Yak, along with a dozen beautiful old vintage cars.
The Murray Grey Foundation announced that it will be teaming up with the aviation and music industry at MotoArt studios on Saturday, May 1, 2010 to hold a charity fundraising concert featuring the Blues Brothers tribute band and other surprise celebrity guests. Together, they will raise needed funds for military families and provide a financial and emotional safety net for those families that serve or have served America.
A rather cool MotoArt project designed by Studio B Design Concepts illustrates the process of concept to reality in an executive office using a DC-9 Wing Desk for their client. The MotoArt wing desk does look beautiful, however the design work & follow up photography by Studio B Design Concepts certainly earns them high merits for their work.

It was another perfect landing. For the third year in a row, the promoters of “Living Legends” event requested MotoArt to design produce stage and hospitality installations of aviation’s most prestigious event.
