The Empire has invaded Pittsburgh! No… really. We’re excited to report that The Vader Project, the too-cool-for-school art project featuring 100 artist customs of full-size replicas of the Dark Lord of the Sith’s helmet, is now showing @ the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh. The exhibit officially opens this Saturday, February 28th (12-4) with a make-your-own-vader mask event. Come out dressed up as your favorite character.
Curated by Dov Kelemer and Sarah Jo Marks of DKE Toys, the Vader Project features the work of some of today’s most exciting artists including Gary Baseman, Tim Biskup, Tristan Eaton, Amanda Visell, Michelle Valigura, tokidoki, Bounty Hunter, Frank Kozik, Joe Hahn and more. Thanks to DKE Toys, we have pics of the installation at the Warhol -- pretty amazing to see the custom Vader helmets along side original Warhol paintings worth millions.
If you're in Pittsburgh, come out for the opening this Saturday. The exhibit runs through May 3rd.
