Lance Armstrong and Nike’s traveling production of STAGES debuted gracefully in Miami last night featuring an impressive array of renowned artists dedicated to expressing the LIVESTRONG message.

 

The opening was overflowing with participating and supporting artists. Shepard Fairey and his wife Amanda were handling the beats at the DJ booth and Lance Armstrong was in the house greeting fellow art lovers and supporters.

Bradford James Cox, i.e. Atlas Sound, provided a beautiful musical accompaniment to the art viewing activities (check out our video content of his performance here). The high walls and empty space created beautiful acoustics and played to an enthusiastic crowd.

Almost as impressive as the dazzling art on display was the offering of free-flowing, delicious beverages (Stella Artois, Mojitos, red and white wine) and gourmet appetizers.
