Newport Wave Sculpture

When your walking around downtown Newport, Rhode Island you may see the Wave statue near the waterfront. This is a popular tourist photo spot for selfies and family photos.

Some people bring socks to put on the statue for a bit of humor - mostly during the cold winter months and late-night visits.

The Newport Wave

Four Things I Learned

  1. Official Name is "The Wave."
  2. No one knows who's feet it is supposed to be in the wave.
  3. The bonze sculpture is 7 and half feet tall and 8 feet wide.
  4. The sculpture was requested by the nearby marketplace - Perry Mill Market. It was don by Kay Worden in 1983.
