Chevrolet’s “Wheels and Wings” Statue Pays Tribute to Strength and Innovation at Red Wings’ New Little Caesars Arena

Chevrolet Wheels and Wings Statue at Little Caesars Arena

Chevrolet and the Detroit Red Wings are a perfect match. Both are based in the Motor City and share the same commitment to innovation and excellence. So, it was a no-brainer when Chevrolet became the official vehicle of the Detroit Red Wings hockey team in 2015. Chevrolet has stepped up their support of their home team, though, with a new Wheels and Wings statue at the team’s new home: Little Caesars Arena.

Set to be permanently displayed at the arena’s northeast entrance, Chevrolet’s “Wheels and Wings” is a celebration of tradition, strength, unity, and invention.

The Statue

Measuring 9-feet 5-inches tall, the sculpture makes a bold statement at the entrance of the new arena. The massive work of art was crafted by former motorcycle stunt rider Tomas Vitanovsky and is partially constructed from disused Chevrolet parts, including a hubcap from 1918. The statue joins the old with the new, and you’ll also find parts from the 2018 Suburban, Tahoe, and Spark, the 2009 Kodiak, the 1996 Caprice, and more.

The Making

Vitanovsky, a Czech Republic native, worked more than 700 hours creating the stunning industrial statue and used 186 parts from various Chevrolet vehicles. The result is a breathtaking work of art that pays proper tribute to an excellent team, an incredible community, and an innovative automaker.
