Cyclepedia at Portland Art Museum

Nutcase Helmets is proud to be a part of this summer’s exhibit, Cyclepedia: Iconic Bicycle Design, which opened at the Portland Art Museum on June 8th and will run through September 8, 2013.

Nutcase donated 475 helmet shells for artists at the Portland Art Museum to create and install a giant Portland Art Museum logo above the entrance to the exhibit.

According to the Portland Art Museum, this special exhibition, drawn from the collection of Vienna-based designer and bike aficionado Michael Embacher, features 40 bicycles—racing, mountain, single-speed, touring, tandem, urban, folding, cargo, and curiosities—representing every decade from 1925 to the present, each chosen by Embacher as examples of pivotal moments in the evolution of bicycle design. Related programs will take place all summer long, including an opening lecture by Embacher himself; fun bike tours; informative panel talks, a bike-themed circus event and outdoor film screening; and weekly bicycle displays showcasing Portland’s internationally recognized community of bicycle designers and builders.
