Memorial later this month for “Moe” Beerman


From the Times: Moses “Moe” Beerman, who helped in the creation of West Seattle’s wonderful murals, has died. His memorial is set for Fauntleroy Church on September 29th — which would have been his 88th birthday. The Times story notes that not only did he work on the murals, he also designed the fabled Hi-Yu float featured in the Junction Post Office mural shown above. ADDED 2:47 PM: From Judy Pickens:

As a tribute to Moe Beerman’s artistic talent and humor, Fauntleroy Church is putting together a collection of his cartoons to display at his memorial service and keep up for awhile afterward. Anyone who has a particularly cherished example of his work (card, poster, or ?) and would be willing to have it scanned and reproduced for the show should call the church office at 932-5600 or email by Sept. 19. One or two sentences about the cartoon (occasion, year) would be great, as well.

    I love that mural on the post office. My hat is off to Moe.

    I had the pleasure of working with Moe on Hi-Yu designs, and was also a speaker at the dedication of this mural. A very talented man. On closer inspection, you will see he is pictured in the mural, but just to the right of this view. If I recall he is wearing the plaid shirt.

Sorry, comment time is over.
