|Richard Beaulieu||Biography: Richard Wilfred Beau Lieu
Sculptor/ Artist/ Director of Boynton Beach Neighborhood Art District
From the French, Beau lieu means, literally, beautiful place. And it is both appropriate and ironic that it should. Richard Beau Lieu, an American Artist, founded Beau Lieu Sculpture Studios in 1984 in Boynton Beach, Florida.
For it is in this place, known only for the scenes and scents of common industry, that Richard Beau Lieu will create some of the finest sculptures and three dimensional, mixed media compositions available today. Beau Lieu's works can be seen in galleries, public buildings and institutions through out the world. His affiliation with international art organizations and National Environmental Groups is noteworthy. In 1989, he was the recipient of the Distinguished Florida Artist of the Year Award. He also received a 1990 award for Significant Contribution to the Arts in Education from the National Organization of Young Audiences and in addition received a 1991 Resident Artist Award for his work with high school students by the Palm Beach County School Department.
In 1986 he received a commission from the Starkoff Associates, that resulted in two monumental sculptures being installed on the grounds of the Arvida Executive Center in Boca Raton. In 1988, another commission resulted in the production of seven sculptures of a marine, or nautical theme, which were part of an underwater art exhibit to benefit The Center for Marine Conservation in Washington, D.C.
