Hundreds Of Bike Helmets On A Brick Wall

A giant grid of bike helmets affixed to the brick exterior of the Portland Art Museum serves as signage for an upcoming exhibit. Nutcase donated 475 Helmets to the museum so its staff could build this one-of-a-kind sign.

The exhibit, Cyclepedia, will run from June 8 through September. It includes bikes from the collection of bicycle designer and aficionado Michael Embacher. The Nutcase sign might be worth a visit alone.
