Nike may be known as a global athletic footwear and apparel powerhouse, but the brand has at its disposal a world-class art department that’s capable of holding its own art exhibition. And that’s precisely what’s set to occur in Portland, Oregon, on March 17th. The Nike Graphic Studio has announced its second art show and benefit, this time featuring a March Madness-like competition under the rubric “Old School vs. New School.” The installation will show works from a select group of Nike designers that highlight the Nike DNA through mediums such as hand painted canvases, three-dimensional exhibits and street inspired stencil art and typography. Proceeds from the show will be donated to Self Enhancement, Inc., a charitable organization that helps at-risk urban youth realize their full potential. Click through for more details about the show.
