NEW ORLEANS (AP) - More than a dozen sculptures that will be used to call attention to evacuation points around New Orleans are arriving in the city.

The statues are simple larger-than-life stick figures that appear as though they are poised to hail a bus. They're being unloaded Monday and will later be installed at 17 pickup points for New Orleans residents who need transportation out of town when a hurricane evacuation is ordered.

They were designed by Boston artist Douglas Kornfeld who was selected for the work by the Arts Council of New Orleans. That group is working with Evacuteer.org, an organization that coordinates volunteers who help with the massive evacuation effort that accompanies a hurricane threat.
