Alice Aycock (American, b. 1946) was born in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, earning her BA from Douglass College and her MA from Hunter College. She is best known for her sculptures, which are often large-scale projects, nearly architectural in scope, that consider the relationships between form, location, materials, and the psychophysical responses of the viewer. Aycock’s work has been exhibited extensively in the United States and abroad, and can be seen in the collections of prestigious institutions like The Museum of Modern Art and the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York City, the Brooklyn Museum, the Louis Vuitton Foundation, and the National Gallery in Washingon, D.C. Some of her publicly commissioned works are located in Salem, Virginia; Houston, Texas; La Jolla, California; Queens, New York; Lake Biwa, Japan; the University of Illinois; the University of Michigan; the University of Nebraska; and several airports across the country. She now teaches at the Maryland Institute College of Art.
