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.”
