Premiering at The Andy Warhol Museum
Show runs from Feb. 13, 09 through May 03, 09

DKE Toys is proud to present "The Vader Project", hosted by The Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh, PA. This project brings forth the aura of the lowbrow art movement as it meshes with the iconic Darth Vader helmet from the Star Wars series. DKE Toys curated this event which boasts an all star lineup of nearly 100 prestigious artists such as Ron English, Frank Kozik, Huck Gee, Usugrow and Cameron Tiede just to name a few(complete list). I was lucky enough to observe a few pieces first hand when The Vader Project showcased at SDCC in July 2007. Simply put, this is an event that you do not want to miss! This showcase begins on 02.13.09 and runs through 05.03.09. [more info]
