Inspired by the groundbreaking introduction of BMX as an Olympic sport this year at the Beijing Games, Nike 6.0 has joined forces with the Athlete Recovery Fund to host their final exhibition, Lightning Bolts on Dec 10th. Kicking off an online auction, all proceeds donated will go to the ARF to aid injured action sports athletes (and judging by the sheer tenacity and huge balls these guys must have to participate in such extreme activities, the ARF are always looking for donations!)

A select group of contemporary artists, each sharing a cultural connection to BMX, were invited to showcase their flair with unique works from Nick Philip, Andy Jenkins, Rich Hansen, and Michael Lau to name a few. The exhibition debuted in Beijing, China on May 13th and has since shown in Portland and Tokyo. The final exhibit will show at the Montalban Theatre in Los Angeles, CA from Dec. 10th- Dec. 14th.

The online auction will take place on Dec 10th here where you can submit a bid, view a photo gallery of all the art and read artist bios. Visit the Montalbán, currently featuring Nike Sportswear’s unique retail installation in the Heart of Hollywood, between Dec. 11th-14th to view the Lightning Bolts exhibit.
