Glenna goodacre

Glenna Maxey Goodacre (born 1939 in Lubbock, Texas) is a sculptor well known for having designed the obverse of the Sacagawea dollar that entered circulation in the United States in 2000. She also designed the Vietnam Women's Memorial located in Washington, D.C., of which there is a smaller replica at Vietnam Veterans Memorial State Park in Angel Fire, New Mexico. Her daughter is world-famous 1980s supermodel Jill Goodacre. Goodacre's father, Homer Glen Maxey, who died in July 1990, was a prominent Lubbock builder, developer and civic leader. A graduate of Texas Tech University in 1931, he was the first president of the Red Raiders Club. He served on the Lubbock City Council from 1956 to 1960. A 100-acre (0.40 km) city park bears the name of Homer Maxey's father, James Barney Maxey (1881–1953), who was hence Glenna Goodacre's paternal grandfather. James Maxey was also a prodigious builder and civic leader in Lubbock and the South Plains. Goodacre's art appears in public, private, municipal and museum collections throughout the U.S. Her bronze sculptures feature lively expression and texture. Goodacre graduated from Monterey High School in Lubbock.
