Pat MUsick’s large wood and steel sculpture entitled Hallelujah! has found a new home at the Crosslake Presbyterian Church in Crosslake, MN.
The work, that Pat created in 2000 consists of five elements varying in height up to nine feet. They were inspired by the gospel choirs which she heard on frequent visits to New Orleans when she lived in the South.
A leader faces four singers with arms raised directing. The singers reach to heaven in various contortions of arms and waving hands. Music seems to flow from the piece, leaving the viewer to respond and interpret…. “Amazing grace, how sweet the sound…”
Hallelujah! is a gift from Ronda Hopkins, member of the Crosslake Presbyterian Church. Her generosity makes possible the placement of the piece. The sculpture’s interesting abstract interpretation fits the beautiful simple, rustic and minimal architecture of the church building.
