Cheryl Miller, The 46 Million Turkeys Project
Grantee Name: Cheryl Miller
Project Name: The 46 Million Turkeys Project
Grant Location: Augusta, Maine
Funding Partner: A Well Fed World
Project Description: The 46 Million Turkeys Project creates awareness—through creative and fun community participation—of the staggering number of animals killed for a single Thanksgiving day in the United States. Participants are invited to “the table” to help create a mini-portrait for every single bird (an estimated 46 million) raised and killed to be eaten on a single holiday. TPP impact grant funds will be used to bring the current collection (comprised of more than 28 million turkey portraits), as well as the opportunity to participate, to a wider audience in 2017 with the goal of sharing love for turkeys as unique individuals.
