Sculptures of Peace and Joy in Rhode Island

This piece of artwork is called "Dancing on the Waves" and is located in a small park in front of the town beach at Narragansett, Rhode Island. The sculpture is created by Anne Mimi Sammis, "whose passion for love and peace, embody the joy, the dance of love between ourselves and others."

From what I can determine, Ms. Sammis is a resident of Narragansett but her artwork can be found in quite a few other states in this country as well as overseas in England and the Netherlands. She has a second sculpture located in the same park called "Dance of Peace" -

Jamie not included!

Sometimes I just don't 'get' modern art but I thought these sculptures were rather pretty and I can appreciate their meaning and the thought behind them. As a matter of fact, I think that our own Queen Mimi, founder of the Peace Globe Movement, would really hit it off with this other Mimi who also strives for peace through her artwork - one of which bears a striking resemblance to a globe! Maybe it's the name?

  1. I like both pieces, but really love the second piece! I bet they're even better in person.

    Maybe Mimi can get Mimi to do a 3-D Peace Globe. That will really move the movement along!
