A project aimed at raising awareness about atrocities occurring in parts of Africa and Asia will involve Tyler Junior College students and faculty.
The TJC group will participate in making artwork bones in partnership with One Million Bones and Students Rebuild.
The handmade bones will be part of more than one million to be placed on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., on June 8, according to a TJC news release.
The public is invited to attend an open event from 4 to 8 p.m. today in Jenkins Hall Room 316 on the TJC main campus.
During the event, people can see a demonstration of the bone-making process and create a sculptural bone from clay, according to the news release.
Each bone created through this initiative will generate a $1 donation up to $500,000 for CARE International's humanitarian relief and rebuilding work in Central Africa, according to the news release.
