This not the car feature you are looking for…
Art features on DaYUUM have been too few and far between, but even with such a packed show schedule this season it’s always refreshing to step back and take in something different.
In a city far, far (well not really that far) away, Disney, Lucas Films, and Neff Headwear teamed up to present the Star Wars Legion exhibition at the Robert Vargas Gallery in downtown Los Angeles this weekend in honor of May the Fourth (be with you) a.k.a. Star Wars Day.
Disney and Neff handed out mini Stormtropper helmets to some of their own talented artists, animators, and product designers – as well as some street artists selected by Neff – to transform these popular helmets into out of this world creations. Over 250 helmets were distributed and each one crazier than the next, below are some of the artworks that really stood out to me. Whether your a Star Wars freak or an art junkie or neither, you have to admit these are pretty cool either way.
Some artist literally transformed the helmets into completely something different.
You know we couldn’t go completely through a DaYUUM! article without something automotive related, which is what really drew me into this one.
Some artists decided to keep it in the galaxy with Star Wars themed helmets, with a personal twist of course.
Crossing over into another universe (still owned by Disney) there were some cool Marvel themed troopers
Even the foodie game was on point at this gallery
What’s a Disney sponsored exhibit without Disney themed designs?
The exhibit wasn’t only helmets. The gallery had a few other unique stormtroopers out on display.
Hope you enjoyed our little art feature on this May 4th. If you’re reading this early enough you can still catch the last day of the exhibit today from noon to 4:00 P.M. at the Robert Vargas Gallery (620 S. Main Street, Los Angeles, CA).
