Reimagining the Stormtrooper Helmet for Star Wars Day

(Reaper by Ken Nelson, The Commander by Danny Osterman, Eleventh Dimension by Sugar Coated)

Cincinnati asked artists to decorate pigs, Chicago did the same with cows, Lexington used horses, and now a galaxy far, far away has invited artists to use Stormtrooper helmets as an art medium for a Star Wars Day art exhibit.

Lucasfilm, Disney Consumer Products, and Neff announced today the upcoming Star Wars Legion exhibition. Artists from across The Walt Disney Company including Lucasfilm, Industrial Light & Magic, Marvel, and Pixar -- as well as select street artists chosen by Neff, and celebrity Star Wars fans -- have volunteered to create individualized interpretations of the iconic Stormtrooper helmet in celebration of the global fan holiday, Star Wars Day, or May the 4th.

The altered helmets will be on display May 2-4 at the Robert Vargas Gallery in Los Angeles (free admission!) and even if you can’t make it, you can see a nice selection of them at Laughing Squid.
