Social Arts Exhibit

One Million Bones — a nationally recognized social art installation raising awareness of genocide and mass atrocities across the globe — has found its permanent home at Bear Mountain Lodge, 60 Bear Mountain Ranch Road, in the Silver City area.

The art installation was dedicated in early 2018, and is now on display for visitors and locals. Initially unveiled at the National Mall in Washington, D.C., with one million handcrafted bones, One Million Bones — a project of The Art of Revolution, whose work seeks to use art to inspire activism — has traveled to various cities across the U.S. to inform, educate and raise awareness. Honoring victims of genocide, the remaining 30,000 ceramic bones from the National Mall were laid in the wilderness of the Bear Mountain Lodge, where they will remain.
