Anna Maria Island Muses
The Greek goddesses who presided over the arts and sciences were called Muses. They were believed to inspire all artists, especially poets, philosophers, and musicians.
These Muses were the daughters of Zeus and Mnemosyne, the goddess of memory.
The Muses sat near the throne of Zeus, king of the gods, and sang of his greatness and of the origin of the world and its inhabitants and the glorious deeds of the great heroes. From their name words such as music, museum, mosaic are derived.
Much like the Greeks of the day, in 'this day'... Anna Maria Island too has its Muses. The following is a list of Anna Maria Island Muses (as displayed on the Island Players website).
