The private jet service company partnered with Jet Art Group and artist Princess Tarinan von Anhalt to celebrate the Learjet’s 50th anniversary with a creative installation.
On April 30 and May 1, 2013, Signature Flight Support in West Palm Beach became von Anhalt’s studio.
The artist hurled paint into a force of approximately seven tons, while standing 50 feet between Flexjet’s Learjet 45 XR engine and the canvas. The engine’s heat and velocity welded the paint onto the canvas, creating bright, abstract paintings.
Flexjet and Jet Art will donate one of von Anhalt’s resulting paintings to nonprofit group Auction Napa Valley, which raises funds for healthcare, housing and youth services.
