100Stone, also known as the 100 Stone project, is a public installation art project in Alaska. It depicts "personal struggles with mental health, told in sculptural form".[1] Sarah Davies leads the project which also includes Ed Mighell (clay artist), Brian Hutton (community activist), Catherine Shenk (landscape designer; horticulturist), and Lee Holmes (engineer).[2] The project began in summer 2013 and the installation occurred November 2015.[3] By the time of the dedication, 9 December 2015, there were 68 sculptures of humans placed along the coast of Anchorage, Alaska at Point Woronzof Overlook on Northern Lights Boulevard, the figures are created using plaster-covered burlap casts of individuals, plus cement and straw, as well as mannequin parts, such as arms.[4]

Many of the sculptures were damaged by the tides, weather and vandals, the sculptures will be removed from Point Woronzof in April, 2016.[5]
