Official information is becoming available about Stages, the traveling art show and sale co-sponsored by Nike to benefit the Lance Armstrong Foundation (LIVESTRONG). The group of participating blue-chip  and emerging art stars (see below) is near monumental and will undoubtedly entice an A-list of philanthropic spending. The exhibit opens July 17 at Galerie Emmanuel Perrotin, Paris and runs till August 8 before heading over to NY and LA this fall, with a final destination at the Portland Art Museum in early 2010. To coincide with the occasion Armstrong will ride on bikes designed by Damien Hirst, KAWS and Marc Newson during the 2009 Tour de France.
