Rutland Vermont has become the home of two of Pat Musick’s giant wall sculptures. The first to be installed is Ishtar at the Southside SteakHouse. This is a powerful mixed media work…canvas, stone, wood and steel. Large, sweeping curves describe the Mesopotamian Goddess of fertility, war, love and sex. Hmmm. Interesting combination. Did the Mesopotamians have it right?She is receiving enthusiastic acceptance from patrons of the new, delightful Grill as well as Wally Sabotka, the owner.
The other sculpture is at the Green Mountain Power Company. It is titled Ra. This is a depiction of the Egyptian God of the sun. It speaks of the function of GMP, to produce and provide power and energy. Made of wood, canvas and acrylic it rests on a huge earth-green wall in the company’s computer facility. It is a focus point for the activity area where workers can take an exercise break. Both pieces are from Musick’s Gods and Goddesses series.
