One Million Bones April 9-20 | Chicago

What's happening?

Crafting Hope, Restoring Humanity
April 2—20
Hokin Gallery, 623 S. Wabash
This exhibition will feature One Million Bones, a collaborative art activist installation designed to recognize the millions of victims and survivors who have been killed or displaced by ongoing genocides and mass atrocities in Sudan, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and Burma. The mission is to create a visible movement that will increase global awareness of these atrocities while raising the critical funds needed to protect and aid displaced and vulnerable survivors. Throughout the month, classes and community groups, individuals and institutions will be invited to come to the gallery and make bones. Students Rebuild will donate $1 for every bone made by a student. With this project, we hope to reach 50,000 bones made for the Great Lakes Area, and look toward a 50,000 Bones GREAT LAKES installation as a part of the Weeks of Welcome in August 2012. Co-sponsored with DEPs, and the Departments of Art + Design and Cultural Studies.
