Hey everyone! Just letting know about the "Boxes of Death" show we will be participating in on August 17th at the AR4T Gallery in Laguna Beach, California. Here's a little snippet about what the show is all about:
"Boxes of Death is an art exhibition where 50 artists are each given their own coffin to do with what they want. The idea spawned from Kane Quaye, a famous coffin maker from Africa. His philosophy was that a coffin should not just be a pine box, but something that represents the person inside and their life. Each artist in the show uses the same coffin canvas format to create their own artistic statement surrounding the preconceived notions and ideas of the coffin shape. The people in the show have a chance to step out of their comfort zone and faced with the idea of death, react to it."
