Gyre by John Grade at Beer Sheva Park

Beer Sheva Park lies on Lake Washington in the Rainier Beach neighborhood. A creek runs through the park. A bridge crosses the creek. The bridge path leads to the lake shore. The area has been planted with native vegetation.

John Grade’s sculpture stands over the creek. A steel base anchors the tall sweeping section of the sculpture made of cedar from a decommissioned bridge in the Cedar River Watershed. Gyre was erected in 2014.

John Grade is well known in Seattle for his Wawona at the Museum of History and Industry and  Middle Fork at the Seattle Art Museum.
