    'Crash to Creativity: The New Deal in Vermont'

    'Crash to Creativity: The New Deal in Vermont'

    Tools

    Through Nov. 4

    “Depression? What Depression?” So went the joke during the Great Depression in Vermont, a place already known for ruggedness and extreme New England thrift. This new exhibition at the Bennington Museum sheds light on how creativity flourished from 1934 to 1944 in the Green Mountain State, as government-funded New Deal initiatives provided work across fields, from artists and architects to construction workers. After Social Security was established in 1935, it was a Vermonter — Ida May Fuller of Ludlow — who received check 00-000-001 for $22.54. While not a depiction of Fuller herself, “Social Security” by Francis Colburn (pictured) imagines the elderly recipient of these much-needed benefits. at Bennington Museum in Bennington.

    Where did you come from, anyway? was one of the last things the artist’s mother said to her before she died. The question is both the title of Musick’s 55-year retrospective, now on view at the Bennington Museum, and of the show’s signature work, pictured here. A departure from much of her earthy, nature-inspired sculpture, “Where Did You Come From Anyway?” presents the artist as defiant and individuated. As Musick writes, “My family came from Iowa farmland [and] were conservative and typical — but I was always different. I stand alone on an island beside a blue cornstalk. Although my feet are firmly rooted in the land, my head is in a pink cloud. The world, both vibrant and dark, swirls around me.” at Bennington Museum in Bennington. Manchester/Bennington (map).
