Photos: '100Stone' art installation opens at Point Woronzof

Artist Sarah Davies welcomed people to the opening of her "100Stone" project on the beach at Point Woronzof in Anchorage on Saturday.

The ambitious project aims to shine a light on mental health. After two years in the works, the figures cast from people around Alaska were installed on the beach at Point Woronzof, only to have the wind, tide and ice decimate the installation in the following days.

With major help from a local ironworkers' union, the figures were rescued and reinstalled above the tideline on new supports, and made ready for the opening on Saturday.
