+ Add Artist to My Preferences
Glenna Maxey Goodacre (1939- ) is a well-known, perhaps the best known, female sculpture artist. Her sculptural works appear in public, private, municipal and museum collections throughout the United States. Probably her most well-known sculpture is the Vietnam Women's Memorial installed in Washington, D.C. in 1993. She was selected to create the monumental Irish Memorial in Philadelphia which was installed in 2003, a larger than life-size sculpture of Ronald Reagan for the Reagan Library in Simi Valley, California, the design of the Sacagawea dollar coin for the U. S. government, and many more monumental works.
Goodacre was born in Lubbock, Texas, but lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico. She had been represented by Nedra Matteucci Galleries in Santa Fe for over a decade with annual exhibits of her works until her serious brain trauma following a fall at her home in 2007, which put a temporary end to her art career. Goodacre made many monumental bronze sculptures, larger than life, but also made table top or pedestal sculptures.
