I love cliche killers; now, an art exhibit could rid us of the now overused "think outside of the box" phrase. How so, you ask? The genius Shoebox Art auction put on by Kids Company and the Bryan Adams Foundation focuses on what is inside of the box.

And what's inside of these boxes are recreations of the childhood bedrooms of the artists involved with the project. The proceeds from the Shoebox Art auction will go to support the at-risk children to whom these charities provide aid. Great idea--even better cause.
