Wing Nuts Loose At Lakeland

MotoArt Doing Art First Class

Donovan vowed to save them from the furnace. Within minutes, he found himself the owner of several hundred pounds of B-17 propellers that were about to be melted. Thus started the adventure that has consumed him.

Donovan Fell III and Dave Hall created MotoArt, a company whose purpose is to turn otherwise aviation junk into art. They starred in an eight episode series on Discovery Channel called "Wing Nuts," which showed them struggling to get their company off the ground. Tragedy struck with the sudden heart failure and death of their friend and costar Timothy Roberts.

MotoArt has changed dramatically since the filming last year. It moved into new and larger studios adjacent to the Torrance Airport in Los Angeles. The additional space and the devoted employees have enabled more spectacular creations.

MotoArt has a new relationship with Saks 5th Avenue to display their DC-9 Wing Desks in Beverly Hills, Boca Raton, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, New Orleans and San Diego. They'll be expanding to other locations in the future.

MotoArt will soon be introducing new art pieces, including refined versions of artwork seen on the TV show. MK-84 Bomb Aquariums, C-54 Conference Tables, F4 Phantom mirrors, Grumman Avenger desks and new Wing Coffee Tables are all in the works.

MotoArt has a selection of first class chairs from L1011's that have brand new dark blue leather upholstery with extended leg rests and built in food trays. Prices start at $1500 per set for leather with cloth chairs starting at $800 per set.

You'll find Donovan and Dave at Lakeland this year, at the outdoor south exhibit space S-009, showing off some of their latest works.
