THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) -

Artists in south Georgia and across the country are building bones for a good cause.

Students in Rich Curtis' Thomas University Art Class participated in the One Million Bones project.

The goal is to spread the word about genocide and other atrocities throughout the world.

The art students presented their bones while helping others create their own today in Thomasville.

"One Million Bones is a national arts activism project that brings awareness to issues of mass violence and genocide like what's happening right now in Syria, in Burma, in Congo. And also raises money for survivors. For every bone that we make it raises $1 for survivors," said Florida Organizer Jane McPherson.

All of the artwork will be displayed on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. from June 8th to the June 10th.
