os· su· ar· y (osh-oo-er-ee)

noun: repository of bones

from Latin, first known use 1658

For this project, Laurie Beth Clark has invited hundreds of artists will create a single bone, a cluster of bones, or an art work that is inspired by, uses, or plays with the idea of bones. The works are in many media, in two, three, or four dimensions. The contributions are political statements and personal elegies, memorials to individuals or statements about mortality. They may represent connections to our ancestors and/or to our descendants. Some are serious and some use bones in a completely playful manner.
