Maillot Jaune

With the Tour De France coming to an end this week, Lance Armstrong has shown incredible tenacity and class in his return to the race. But all along he has been riding not only for himself but also for countless of cancer patients and survivors. In conjunction with his return to the sport, Armstrong together with Nike is also launching Stages 09, an art exhibition dedicated to the celebration of human potential inspired by Lance Armstrong and the fight against cancer.

From the press notes it states:

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.

It unites the world of art, philanthropy, and sport by bringing together some of the most renowned figures in art to produce work inspired by Lance and his fight against cancer. All work is available for purchase with proceeds directly benefiting the Lance Armstrong Foundation. Join the fight. LIVESTRONG.

The exhibit opened in Paris and will be traveling to NYC for an Oct 2, 2009 opening.
