One MIllion Bones

mainimage.jpg       The One Million Bones Project is a social art project started by installation artist Naomi Natale in 2009. The goal is to collect one-million handmade bones and display them on the National Mall in Washington D.C. later this year. This project was inspired by a necessary relief and awareness effort in response to genocide in Somalia and the Democratic Republic of Congo.  The reason I am posting this is the SCAD sculpture program is participating in this effort and had our first bone-making session this past Saturday.  We will be doing this again during another Saturday during the quarter and the effort is open to anybody interested.

  1. We in the U.S. tend to ignore what's going on in Somalia, so it's good that you guys are participating in the One Million Bones Project.
