We see jets. Jeffrey Milstein sees art flying by.
“The Jet as Art” is Jeffrey Milstein’s latest exhibition at the Smithsonian.
Jeff was always fascinated by planes and used to hang out at LAX to catch them flying on by. The little kid is still there only bigger and now equipped with a camera.
The average fly by speed can be over 200 mph which in itself presents a challenge. Timing is everything. The engineering is 360 degrees, but we rarely if ever consider the underside of a jet’s complex lines, textures and geometrics. It’s very creatively refreshing!

Jeff’s work will be on display at the Smithsonian
AirCraft: The Jet As Art will be on display November 25, 2011 through November 25, 2012 at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum in Washington D.C. This collection of 33 super-sized photographic prints presents the power and elegance of aircraft in flight and transforms aviation technology into fine art.
All the best with your exhibition at the Smithsonian Jeff!
