There's a lot to love about Lance Armstrong's Stages project.
Currently on exhibition in Paris, the Stages project has brought together several of the top artists in the world to raise awareness -- and money -- for the fight against cancer.
I'm perpetually enamored of Cai Guo-Qiang, and his sun-colored LiveStrong-influenced contribution does not disappoint. Check out the other works by folks like Catherine Opie, Ed Ruscha, and Shepard Fairey, ranging from sculpture to photography to painting to print.

I grew up with the unquestioning conviction that the world was divided between the jocks and the artists. Now I get it -- they both leave you pretty exhilarated.
