In 2009, a 500-year-old artifact was discovered on the beach outside of Quinhagak, Alaska, opening the door to the most productive archaeological dig in Arctic history with 60,000 artifacts recovered so far. In 2009, the site was 50 feet from the ocean. Today it is ten.

I had a vision.

A hundred stories of personal struggle with mental health, told in sculptural form. Based in Anchorage, Alaska, 100Stone seeks to change the perspectives through which people view those who struggle with depression or thoughts of suicide, and how those who struggle with mental health see themselves. The sculptures will be placed in the Cook Inlet on December 5th, 2015. For more information go to www.100stoneproject.com
