In her own words, sculptor Glenna Goodacre describes the inspiration for, and creation of, her unforgettable bronze sculptures. From the timid beginning of a six-inch study of her daughter Jill, Goodacre went on to sculpt over 40 important portrait commissions including the standing figure of president Ronald W. Reagan at the National Cowboy Heritage Center and the Reagan Presidential Library. This book features photographs of her most high-profile pieces, but many little-known works are included as well. Her most popular monument is the Vietnam Women's Memorial in the National Mall. Her largest public installation is the Irish Memorial at Penn's Landing in Philadelphia. Goodacre's smallest work is the front of the Sacagawea golden U.S. Dollar, first minted in 2000. Previously unpublished studies from the design process for the coin are also represented. A photographic survey of the artist's engaging sculptures, along with snapshots and anecdotes, covers the wide scope of her colorful career.
