NIKE AND LANCE ARMSTRONG UNITE



... TO LAUNCH "STAGES" - A GLOBAL ART EXHIBITION TO RAISE FUNDS AND AWARENESS IN THE FIGHT AGAINST CANCER.


As if racing the Tour de France wasn't enough of a time commitment...we received this in our inbox...and pass along the news...

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 before traveling to the United States this fall. All work is available for purchase with proceeds directly benefiting the Lance Armstrong Foundation.

Join the fight. Help others live strong.

Paris July 17, 2009 – August 8, 2009
Gallery hours: Tue – Sat, 11am – 7pm



Galerie Emmanuel Perrotin / 76 rue de Turenne, 75003 Paris
