Sophie la girafe: Revisited by Artists
To celebrate her fiftieth anniversary, in Paris on May 25th, 2011, St. Sophie's Day, the little giraffe was interpreted and given a visual makeover by renowned artists. The "Sophie as seen by…" exhibit featured 70 works.
The artworks were sold during a by-invitation auction, hosted by Pierre Cornette de Saint Cyr, with profits benefitting a personalised cancer treatment research program called "Cancer Revolution". Funds raised during this event were primarily intended for childhood cancer research.
