    Pat Musick

    Tools

    Through Dec. 30

    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).
