With the first phase of Citi Bike, New York City's first bicycle sharing program, getting underway, the New Museum of Contemporary Art wants to use the occasion by promoting cycling safety. Working in conjunction with the Safe Streets Fund and helmet maker Bern, the museum is now offering a limited edition helmet series by artist Brian Donnelly, better known as KAWS. Based on Bern Unlimited's Watts model, the helmet is made from a layer of ABS hardshell, EPS foam insulation, and available in four sizes. Each featuring KAWS' whimsical "Xs and Eyes" graphic in tonal, all-over print. Limited to 500 units only, proceeds from sales will go to support New Museum programs and the Safe Streets Fund. Retails for $80 USD each, the helmet is available for pre-order now with delivery set for mid-June later this summer.
