ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Dozens of sculptures made of straw, cement, plaster and burlap are spread across an Anchorage beach in a public art installation that is focusing on mental health.

The display has been erected at Point Woronzof and will officially open Dec. 5.

Lead project artist Sarah Davies says the 85 sculptures represent people dealing with emotional vulnerabilities, including trauma and mental illness.

Participants say the 100Stone project is about the personal wellness-management stories of Alaskans. Participants say each sculpture was fashioned from and by people affected by emotional pressures.
