An installation artist and social activist, Naomi Natale is most known as the Founder and Director of One Million Bones, a large-scale installation project where one million handmade bones from individuals all over the world were created to spotlight the victims of genocide. The final work was installed and displayed on the National Mall in Washington, DC in 2013. She is the recipient of the 2011 Arts Healing Network Award. Naomi is the Co-Founder of “Art of Revolution”, an organization which uses art as a conduit for inciting social change and political awareness. Naomi and her co-founding partner Susan McAllister strive to connect artists and activists across various platforms for the sake of making art that is educational, socially conscious, and able to reach those both near and far. http://www.onemillionbones.net/who-we-are/ http://theartofrevolution.org/who
