Dana Point: Elephant sculptures are silly, sweet--and sobering
Thirty baby elephant sculptures--one decorated like a Ferrari, another covered in hearts--will make you smile, but their mission in coming to Dana Point is serious: to raise awareness about the endangered Asian elephant. The sculptures -- actual size of a baby, 4 feet high and 6 feet long -- go on display Aug. 24 and 25 at Doheny State Beach before they scatter to different parts of the seaside town, reminders of animals half a world away that need our help. The exhibition ends Nov. 17. Here are some pieces from past and present shows.
