Funky Bell Helmet Art – 21 Helmets Project
Wednesday, February 8, 2012
The concept is simple. Give 21 Bell Custom 500 helmets
to 21 artists in the Portland area and see what happens. Oregon’s largest metropolitan is known for its youthful, lively and progressive scene. From its kickass coffee houses to sudsy microbrew festivals, in between is a cool motorcycle culture as well. The Bell 21 Helmets exhibit will be part of The One Motorcycle Show
which takes place February 10-11.
The bare, grimy studio showcases each helmet on its own stand, allowing guests to meander through the room viewing the unique artwork with cold PBR in hand. I like to think I’d appreciate an art show, but I’m not actually going to one any time soon. With hip, funky, retro bike style, this is one that I could have gotten into.
