Seattle`s Public Art: Gerard Tsutakawa, Urban Peace Circle

This edition of Seattle`s Public Art looks at The Urban Peace Circle by Gerard Tsutakawa. The Urban Peace Circle is the culmination of a gun buy-back program by an organization called Stop The Violence, formed after six young people were shot and killed in the Puget Sound region on weekend in March 1992. The funds raised from the buy-back were used to commission the piece, and several of the reclaimed guns were symbolically entombed in the concrete base of the sculpture. Produced for the Seattle Channel by John Forsen with support from the Mayor`s Office of Arts & Cultural Affairs.
