‘The Vader Project’ is an exhibition at the Andy Warhol Museum that features dressed-up Darth Vader helmets created by pop artists. Mister Cartoon, Ron English, Jeff Soto, and Dalek are among the artists whose works are featured. We wrote about the project upon its inception two years ago, but its popularity has only continued to grow.
Check out some of my favorite decorated Darth Vader helmets in the gallery above, and if you’re in the Pittsburgh area, be sure to head over to the Andy Warhol Museum to check out ‘The Vader Project.’
