46 Million Portraits Showcase Turkeys as Individuals!

MAINE – 46 Million Turkeys is an ongoing community participatory 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 raise, killed and consumed on a single Thanksgiving Day in the United States. Most people’s experience with a turkey is a headless carcass on a plate. The 46 Million Turkeys Project is putting a face on these individual birds through portraiture.

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.
