Alice Cooper (sculptor)

for the American rock singer, see Alice Cooper


Alice Cooper (April 8, 1875 – 1937) was an American sculptor.

Born in Glenwood, Iowa, and based in Denver, Colorado, Cooper studied under Preston Powers (son of the well known sculptor Hiram Powers,[1]) then at the Art Institute of Chicago with Lorado Taft and the Art Students League of New York through about 1901.

Cooper is best known for her bronze figure of Sacajawea originally produced as the centerpiece for the Lewis and Clark Centennial Exposition in Portland, Oregon, 1905, unveiled in a ceremony attended by Susan B. Anthony and other prominent feminists.[2] This figure now stands in Washington Park.

Other work includes:

  • bronze figure of local benefactor Almeron Eager, Evansville, Wisconsin, 1907
  • work produced for the United States Customs House in San Francisco, California, for architects Eames and Young, circa 1911
