46 Million Turkeys Go on a Road Trip!

MAINE – The 46 Million Turkeys Project, now in its fourth year, is an ambitious ongoing collaborative community art project. The project’s aim—with help from the community—is to create a collection of portraits honoring each one of the estimated 46 million turkeys who will be killed for Thanksgiving meals. The essential point of the project is to give each turkey a face emphasizing they are a unique individual.

Everyone is welcome to submit portraits—you do not have to be an “artist” to participate. Participants are encouraged to use recycled materials (but no animal products, e.g. feathers, sea shells, or leather please) and create portraits measuring 2” x 2” in any medium.

For guidelines, ideas, and a submission form:

In November 2017 the 46 Million Turkeys Community Participatory Art Project will be doing pop up art exhibits in four States to display millions of turkey portraits. And we’ll be asking people to draw a turkey portrait to add to the collection.
