“Alice Aycock was born in Harrisburg, PA. She received a B.A. from Douglass College and an M.A. from Hunter College.
Aycock's early public works are land pieces that involve reshaping the earth such as A Simple Network of Underground Wells and Tunnels, Low Building With Dirt Roof (For Mary), and the Williams College Project, all situated on farms in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Massachusetts While these pieces have become subjected to the weather and are no longer there, she has continuously worked on outdoor pieces and installations that are permanently sited in public and private places. A long list of these pieces includes: The Solar Wind, in Salem, VA, The House Of Stoics, in Lake Biwa, Japan, The Tower Of Babel, in Buhsnami Sculpture Garden near Houston, Texas, The Island of the Moons and Suns, Robert Orton's sculpture garden in La Jolla, CA, Fantasy Sculpture II, at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, and Summaries of Arithmetic Through Dust, Including Writing Not Yet Printed, at the entrance to the Engineering Department, University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. Aycock's public sculptures can be found in many major cities in the U.S. Some of her public commissions include a roof top sculpture for the 107th Police Precinct House in Queens, NY in collaboration with the architects Perkins, Eastman and a Waterworks installation built adjacent to a new Medical Facility at the University of Nebraska in Omaha.”
