Famous sculptor Rosalind Cook will give a presentation about her work at 1 p.m. on Sept. 22 in the Tom and Brenda McDaniel University Center.
Cook will also describe her new book, title “Capturing the Spirit in Bronze,” which is being released this month. She will sign copies of the book after the presentation.
The event is free and open to the public.
Cook sculpts large works which are displayed throughout the United States in parks, hospitals, and other public areas. She has 30 life-size sculptures placed around the Tulsa area alone.
Cook said that her work is an extension of who she is as a person.
“My experiences, my personality, and my faith are all included in my work,” Cook said. “I seek to celebrate life through my sculptures.”
The sculptor has a special connection to the mid-south region of the United States. Cook attended college at the University of Texas, receiving a degree in special education for the blind and visually impaired. She currently works out of her private studio in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
Cook has received the Best of the Best Artist in Oklahoma Award from Oklahoma Magazine for the past five years. She also received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Oklahoma Sculpture Society in 2002.
