The Vader Project @ The Warhol

Boy, did I enjoy the Vader Project exhibit that opened today at the Andy Warhol museum. Paige sent me off without the boys this morning for a quick visit, and it was wonderful to view the 100 helmets each decorated by a different contemporary artist with no one to carry and no worries that someone in my party was going to touch a helmet or knock over a pedestal. I'll go back at some point and take the boys, who have not yet seen one minute of any Star Wars movie.

One of my favorites was the Vader helmet reinterpreted as a Kangol hat by KaNO.

If you can't go in person (everyone who can, should), check out this set of Flickr photos from an earlier mounting of the exhibit.
