Alice Aycock, internationally known for her large scale, contemporary public sculptures, is the first speaker in this year’s Visiting Artists and Scholars Lectures program, hosted annually by the Department of Art at Oregon State University.
Aycock has exhibited in major museums and galleries nationally as well as Europe and Japan. Her works can be found in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, NY; Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago; the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; Brooklyn Museum, New York; the Louis Vuitton Foundation; LA County Museum; and the National Gallery, Washington DC.
Aycock’s public sculptures can be found throughout the United States, including the San Francisco Public Library, a large-scale sculptural roof installation for the East River Park Pavilion on 60th Street in NYC, and “Star Sifter” for Terminal 1 at JFK International Airport. Other projects include a GSA commission for the Fallon Building in Baltimore, an outdoor piece entitled “Strange Attractor”, at the Kansas City Int’l Airport, and “Ghost Ballet for the East Bank Machineworks” in Nashville, Tennessee. A permanent public artwork for Washington Dulles International Airport, Washington, D.C. will be completed in 2011, as well as a piece for Michigan State University, East Lansing, Michigan in 2012.
She will speak on Nov. 10 at 7 p.m. in the LaSells Stewart Center. A reception for the artist will precede the lecture at 6 p.m. in the LaSells Stewart Center lobby. Both events are free and open to the public.
