Dulaney art students worked collaboratively to participate in the One Million Bones Project. Together they created almost 200 hundred bones to be donated for a mass installation in Washington, D.C. Each bone will raise $1 to fight genocide in countries like Sudan, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Burma, Syria, and, Somalia (just to name a few). If you’d like to donate, participate or want more information please visit http://www.onemillionbones.org/ or see Ms. Voluse.
