“The Bones Remain Project” on Display, at the Memorial Hall Library, 2 North Main St., Andover. As a way to honor and remember the 800,000 victims of the Rwandan Genocide, a group of students and teachers from Andover High School collaborated to create “The Bones Remain.” Students sculpted human bones out of clay, to install as a collection modeled after genocide memorials in Rwanda, which expose the bones of victims as a means of ensuring that the atrocities of 1994 are never forgotten. The bones in the student exhibit represent all genocide victims around the world, past and present. The exhibit mirrors the One Million Bones Project (onemillionbones.org), which was on display on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. in June 2013. The Andover Fund for Education provided a grant for the installation. The opening reception is Thursday, June 12, 6 to 7 p.m. Call 978-623-8401, ext. 31 or 32 or visit mhl.org.
