Make some bones to benefit project

-A A +A

The Rising Moon Gallery will host a potluck and ceremony to honor the victims of genocide around the world from 5-7 p.m. Nov. 2.
Bones made of clay, by adults and children of the Abiquiu community, will be laid out in a ceremony to honor the victims of genocide.
The making of the bones is a community project that supports the national One Million Bones project.
The One Million Bone project allows participants to showcase their creativity and join a global community working to end genocide by making a bone and/or sponsoring a bone for $5.  
Proceeds are donated to direct service and advocacy organizations through the One Million Bones project headquartered in Albuquerque.
Bones made at the Rising Moon Gallery and at the Abiquiu Elementary School and La Puerta School will be transported to Albuquerque to become part of a national installation in Washington, D.C. at the National Mall on June 8, 2013.
One Million Bones is a fundraising art installation and education project designed to recognize the millions of victims killed or displaced by ongoing genocides.
Its mission is to increase global awareness of the ongoing devastation of genocide, raise $5 million to protect and aid displaced victims and educate students about tolerance through art and social activism.
