Did you miss the "One Million Bones" exhibit here at UT?  If so, don't worry.  There's still time.  Today through 6PM and tomorrow (Good Friday) through 4PM bones will be on display in Student Union Room 2592 on the Main Campus.

"One Million Bones" is a project undertaken to bring awareness to genocide and UT is one of many participants.   The bones for UT's installation were prepared by The Arts Living/Learning Community with the help of about 30 student sculptors as explained here.
