Artist Holton Rower just sent us an image of the first batch of wishbones he received via The Wishbone Project, Improvised Life’s campaign to crowdsource wishbones for a monumental artwork Holton plans to make out of this unusual art material. We’re thrilled! Reader B.C.E. saved a stash of wishbones from various chicken dinners and sent them to Holton. In return, he’s sending her a thank you gift.
Holton is now that many wishbones closer to the hundreds of thousands he needs to make his work. We got the idea to crowdsource wishbones when we realized that it would take Holton decades to get all he needs. (We know because we’ve been collecting ours for him for several years now. It takes A LOT of wishbones —but almost no work — to make even a handful.)
As with all things creative and visionary works, little by little, step by step gets the job done.

Thanks a million B.C.E!
