Famous Sculptor of Madrona’s Peaceable Kingdom Dies at 86

Madrona LibraryMost know the Seattle sculptor Richard Beyer for his public artwork: “Waiting for the Interurban.”  The Fremont sculpture features five adults, one with a baby in her arms, and a dog with the face of the Fremont civic leader who opposed the placement of the statute.  The sculpture has delighted Seattlelites on the corner of North 34th Street and Fremont Avenue North since 1979.

Many probably do not know of Beyer’s other work in Madrona near the other 34th – 34th Avenue.  The Peaceable Kingdom in front of the Madrona Library (on 33rd actually) was created by Beyer in 1984.  The aluminum sculpture was to show how our Madrona neighborhood could live together as one in some turbulent time in our history.  The theme is roughly based on biblical passage, Isaiah 11:6-9, with each animal representing a part of Madrona: the pig = the police, the panther = the Black Panthers, the wolf = the aggressive street youth, and the sheep = the neighborhood elderly.

Beyer shaped creative art that could be enjoyed by everyone, but with special meaning when you learned a little about its history.  Click the link to read more about Beyer’s life in the Seattle Times.
