It started with PF Flyer sneakers. Now, enter the motorcycle helmets. MN4MN Blank Canvas has returned to Public Functionary, bigger and better than before. The two-phase project has already started with 10 local artists (among them Leslie Barlow, Jennifer Davis, and Yuya Negishi) transforming a motorcycle helmet into an object d’art. The second phase takes place during the grand opening. Not only will the helmets be on exhibition, but so will photographs of models wearing the helmets shot by 10 photographers. The helmets and the photos will be for sale and on display during the reception. Also not to miss is a fashion show, with the helmets as head gear, by those same models and styled by impresario IAmMoody.
