Coachella 2018: Made from a jet body, ‘Lodestar’ art piece suggests Earth and worlds beyond

By Alicia Robinson

A jet fuselage that artist Randy Polumbo found online is the basis for a towering sculpture he called “Lodestar,” one of five major art pieces on the field at this year’s Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.

It balances on its nose and two wing-like projections, and the skyward-pointed tail is peeled open and topped with a skeletal flying saucer-like object.

Dangling spheres that look like misshapen disco balls flash as they catch the light. Multi-colored hand-blown glass bulbs bloom near the top of the sculpture.
