"The concept for Boxes of Death is quite simple," explains project founder Patrick De Armas. "We give 50 artists blank coffin canvases and they create their art using that canvas. Seems simple enough, but since the coffin is inherently loaded with symbolism, emotions, preconceived notions and a long history, it makes for a challenging task." Artists chosen to participate this year -- the fourth for the project, which has become a sponsored, four-stop traveling exhibit curated by Southern California gallery Artists Republic 4 Tomorrow -- include legendary pro skateboarders Steve Caballero and Jason Jesse and pro snowboarder Jamie Lynn.
