The Prohab Helmet Show recap

The Prohab Helmet Show recap 150 150 Dustin John Bromley

First of all, Thank you very much to everyone who came out on Friday to the new and beautiful Modus Studios! The event was a huge success, with over 350 (estimated) people through the doors over the course of the night.

We’re also very happy to announce that every helmet was sold!
Thank you so much to all the artists who participated, all of the work was amazing, and so varied from piece to piece. Keep an eye out for their next showings!

You can see some photos from the first half of the night on The Georgia Straight’s website, taken by Jon Cranny.

It was a new venture for us to organize and curate an art show. It couldn’t have been accomplished without the support of the community, and our event sponsors, Scion Canada & Ultra X-Press Printing.

Our next event is the 2011 Calendar release party, which will be November 5th 2010, at The Astoria. Save the date!

The Prohab Helmet Show is tonight!

Come down and have a beer or glass of wine, and bid on a helmet or two!

Hey everyone! We have a big big announcement!!

Friday September 17th, 2010.
The Prohab Helmet Society proudly presents:

The Prohab Helmet Show!
(click the link for the Facebook event)

We’ve been wanting to make this happen for a long long time, and it’s finally coming together!

Here’s what’s going down.
We’ve given blank helmets to seven of our favorite Vancouver artists to create/decorate/reinterpret as they please. The only rule given was the finished helmets must be able to be used for their intended purpose: being worn on heads, of course!
The helmets will be sold during the night through a silent auction, with the proceeds being split 50/50 to the artist and Prohab.

Featuring:
Randy Grskovic
Peter Taylor
Vincent Parker
Andy Dixon
Coreena Lewis
Ben Skinner
Graeme Berglund

DJs Neil Hillbrandt & Kellen Powell (Blastramp, Make it Count!), and Niña Mendoza will be playing some tunes for mingling and there will be a few kegs at low low starving artist prices!
Come by and have some drinks before the bar or stay all night.
That said, please do respect the gallery and all art inside, this isn’t a frat party.

Doors at 8pm, Goes til 1am
at the brand new MODUS STUDIOS at 206 Carrall!

See you there!

This event couldn’t happen without our generous sponsors:

Scion Canada
&
Ultra X-Press Printing
Thank you!
