Her Art Here, a first-of-its-kind contest, was created to find and uplift underrepresented women artists by providing them with a chance to have their work painted on a canvas like no other — a Boeing 757 plane.
While 51% of today’s artists are women, less than 13% of art on display in museums is by women artists according to The National Museum of Women in the Arts. Having their designs painted on a plane (roughly 3,666 times larger than the typical 18’ x 24’ canvas) provides these women with a traveling canvas that will fly 1.6 million miles a year, or 476 cross-country trips on average.
The New York/New Jersey airplane from the Her Art Here contest is a one-of-a kind, woman-designed aircraft painted in Amarillo, Texas. It took 17 days, 10 colours, 250-plus gallons of paint and approximately 4,100 hours to complete the job. The Boeing 757 designed by New Jersey native Corinne Antonelli is a tribute to the New York/New Jersey region and the Newark Liberty International Airport hub. This plane features iconic imagery from the two states, including the Red Mill in New Jersey, the New York City skyline and the Statue of Liberty, as well as a globe to signify United’s worldwide network.
This model aircraft is made from die-cast metal and include extensive detailing. It is similar in quality to Aeroclassics, Phoenix Models, JC Wings, NG Models and Aviation400.
