Vader Project Opening

The Vader Project exceeded my expectations. The 100 helmets were made by celebrities of urban contemporary art including Dalek. Except for two or three, all the helmets were extremely well crafted. Some were illustrative, while others included sculptural embellishments. The room full of helmets reflected a variety of current styles including pop surrealism, low brow art, graffiti, comic book and skateboard art. As part of the grand opening, there were some special guests in the hall outside the exhibit. (Sorry, no photos allowed inside the show itself.)

Darth Vader and Storm Troopers discuss evil plots while Boba Fett keeps guard back by the exhibit entry.
