One Million Bones
1:03 p.m., April 28, 2012
Santa Fe, NM—In honor of Genocide Awareness Month, a group of youngsters, in conjunction with the One Million Bones social arts practice, laid down clay and paper mâché bones on the lawn in front of the Santa Fe Roundhouse, the New Mexico capitol building. Other activists planted bones on at capitol buildings in all 50 states. The One Million Bones project is working to raise awareness of genocide occurring around the world. The One Million Bones staff is collecting bones from students all across the country (in this case, the students, visible top right, were making bones from recycled telephone books) with the goal of laying 1,000,000 of them on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., in the spring of 2013.
