Wheels Up Partners with Peter Tunney to Launch His Latest Exhibit, LOST AND FOUND, at Art Basel
Wheels Up, the newly-launched revolutionary membership-based private aviation company that lowers the cost of entry to private aviation and provides unparalleled flexibility and service, announced today that it will partner with world-renowned pop artist Peter Tunney for the launch of his latest exhibit, "Lost and Found" at Art Basel Miami. The collection brings together an array of works including those built with reclaimed aircraft pieces. Wheels Up is the exclusive private aviation partner.
This year in his new show for Art Basel, Tunney's newest and never-before-seen work spills off the canvas and onto an eclectic array of found objects collected over the years, including airplane wings, a 1950's vintage car hood, and salvaged appliances and furniture. The exhibition "Lost and Found" endeavors to turn trash into treasure. The exhibit opens at Wynwood Walls, the unique warehouse district on Thursday, December 5 with a cocktail reception with Mr. Tunney from six to nine p.m.
