John Wayne Airport“The Marconi Automotive Museum & Foundation for Kids” exhibit is on display at John Wayne Airport’s ORANGE COUNTY: Destination Art & Culture exhibition space through September 2017. Featured as part of John Wayne Airport’s (JWA) Arts Program, the exhibit may be viewed pre-security along the pedestrian walkway connecting Riley Terminals B and C.

 

The Marconi Automotive Museum & Foundation for Kids was founded by Dick Marconi and opened to the public in 1994. Always a great car enthusiast, over the years Marconi amassed an impressive collection of high performance street cars and race cars. The Marconi Automotive Museum in Tustin features one of the largest collections of rare, exotic and high performance street cars in North America.

 

“This exhibit highlights the history of Dick Marconi, the auto museum, and the foundation for at-risk children that he established,” said Board Chairwoman Michelle Steel. “I encourage John Wayne Airport visitors to enjoy this meaningful slice of local history.”

 

Founder Dick Marconi relocated from Gary, Indiana, in the late 1950s. Based in Southern California, he built a company that became the world’s largest manufacturer of vitamins, food supplements and weight loss products. Along the way, Dick developed his life’s mantra which is to “learn, earn and return.” In keeping with this personal philosophy, Marconi established the Marconi Foundation for Kids and donated all of his vehicles and the building which housed his former race team. Today, the Marconi Auto Museum & Foundation for Kids hosts private events and sponsors fundraisers to support charities serving at-risk children that include Olive Crest, Drug Use is Life Abuse, Child Help, Orangewood, Covenant House, KidWorks and OC Rescue Mission.
