Lance Armstrong and Nike unite to launch STAGES, a global art exhibition to raise funds and awareness for the fight against cancer.
Shepard and 19 other 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. The first stop of the traveling exhibition will be in Paris, France, opening 7/17.
Shepard’s artwork is based on a photograph taken by cancer survivor Dina Douglass / Andrena Photography
