OVERVIEW

A two-year initiative (2014-15), 100 Stone Project was a state-wide, community-based effort to give physical form to the grief, trauma, struggle, and isolation that leads some individuals to suicide. The sculptures created by the initiative were displayed to draw public awareness of place, people, and mental health. Proceeds from the sale of surving "stones" are supporting new, community-engaged projects.
