Buck Miller just brought in his helmet. This helmet is one to get up close and personal with. The helmet is striking but it is the fine detail that is mind blowing.

Jen Bardsley produced this bright helmet. Jen's work is always a reflection of her love of art, her passion for cycling and her effervescent personality.
Jen Bardsley
-- 07/04/2014 18:21
Ahhhh, thanks Alex Gallego! Honestly, this helmet has been haunting me. I usually create works that are very painterly with a lot of energy in each brushstroke. This was hard for me to be be so careful make all the connections work. But I am super stoked about how it turned out. I am down with the "old school" theme of disco ball and cassettes. <3 I hope we make tons of money for the Tanner Olson Memorial BMX Park!!!!!
Kathy Coey Jackson
-- 07/04/2014 18:21
Word Mama Jen! Love your helmet and love you!!

Local artisan Troy Kindred just dropped off his creation for The Helmet Project 2014. We always look forward to seeing what our local artists come up with... So far it's shaping up to be another great event!

Art work etched onto a helmet by Dan Swehla. The detail is remarkable and gives the appearance of being three dimensional. There is far more happening in this piece of work than can be captured by a camera.
Fenesa Dilworth

This is incredible!
Blair Fisher

I consider myself a fan of Marlo Crocifisso. For those of you who enjoy her art will really like the helmet she did for the Helmet Project this year. It is a colorful presentation with multiple visual elements.

The wonderful thing about giving artists free reign to create their art is that we could never begin to imagine the amazing creativity we will encounter. Case in point. Jeff Pernell brought in this amazing helmet today. To see more of Jeff's work visit http://gunpowderart.com/
