About the author

Pat Musick has been a sculptor for forty-five years. She creates indoor and outdoor, wall and free standing, large scale and small and site specific art. Her work is in the permanent collections of over fifty museums and public spaces throughout the country. Together with her husband, Jerry Carr, Commander of NASA Skylab 4 and retired Astronaut, she formed the company CAMUS, Incorporated that currently deals in the design, construction and installation of sculpture in public spaces. They work as a team. She designs the sculpture to fit the site and he is responsible for the engineering of the piece. Together, they finish the work with the specified elements. The materials they work with are primarily stone, wood and steel. Mankind’s relationship to his surround is a dominant theme in Musick’s work. Through her work as both a painter and a sculptor, she seeks reconciliation between the forces that mankind exerts upon nature and the opposing forces that nature wields on our earth. Her art offers a message of harmony, balance, and peace. Musick received her Doctorate in philosophy and her Master of Arts in design from Cornell University. Her most recent work, A Place Where They Cried, was created for the grounds of Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, Bentonville, Arkansas. The work is a tribute to the Cherokee, Chickasaw, Choctaw, Muscogee Creek and Seminole people who traveled through Arkansas as part of the Trail of Tears forced migration in 1837-39. She is the author of three books. Her work is in the permanent collection of museums, sculpture parks, and corporations throughout the United States. Musick exhibits nationwide.
