This sculpture made of stainless steel ribbons is mounted on a wall at the entrance of the Truman Medical Center's Lakewood Campus. The sculpture represents celebration, happiness, and rejoicing and looks like it is dancing. The artwork is trying to improve the mood of the viewer before they enter the hospital, which is not always a pleasant visit.
