ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Volunteers on Friday were rebuilding a public art installation that was damaged by tides and high winds at an Anchorage beach, and the lead artist says the display will be ready for its scheduled weekend unveiling.

Lead project artist Sarah Davies says participants at Point Woronzof are reinstalling 69 of the 85 sculptures made of straw, cement, plaster and burlap. She says the official opening is still scheduled for Saturday.

Most of the figures were toppled by the elements last week, just days after they were installed.

Participants say the 100Stone project is about the personal wellness-management stories of Alaskans. The sculptures represent people dealing with emotional vulnerabilities, including trauma and mental illness.
