Lance Armstrong and Nike recently united to launch 'Stages', a global art exhibition to raise funds and awarness for the fight against cancer. Over twenty renowned artists have donated their time and creativity to express the LIVESTRONG message and raise funds for the Lance Armstrong Foundation, which is committed to inspiring and empowering people affected by cancer.
STAGES is more than an event. It is a unique celebration of human potential inspired by Lance and dedicated to the fight against cancer. It unites the worlds of art, philanthropy and sport by commissioning some of the most renowned figures in art to produce work inspired by Lance and his fight against cancer. The exhibition opens at the Galerie Emmanuel Perrotin in Paris from July 17, 2009 – August 8, 2009 before traveling to the United States this fall. All work is available for purchase with proceeds directly benefiting the Lance Armstrong Foundation.
