Musick received both an MA and a PhD from Cornell University. Following a lifelong dream and in keeping with her love of the natural beauty of the area in which she resides as well as her devotion to sculpture, Musick and her husband, former astronaut Jerry Carr, established the Ozarks Woodland Sculpture Garden in 2000. It is located on a twelve-acre meadow outside of Huntsville, next to the Madison County Wildlife Management Area in Madison County, Arkansas. This parcel of land, a Millennium Trails site, provides an exhibition space, especially to benefit Arkansas artists. Musick’s large-scale, award-winning Great Circle Stanzas was the first piece installed in the garden.
Sculptures by Musick have been included in many exhibitions in the United States, especially at venues in the south central states. Her most recent solo shows include ones held at the Arkansas Arts Center, Little Rock and Aumonerie Saint Jacques in Gordes, France, plus a tour of seven Texas museums and the on-going Yokes on the Trail of Tears, which will travel to a six-state area in the South. Musick exhibited Harvest, a steel, stone, and wood piece, at Grounds For Sculpture when the work was chosen to be in the National Association of Women Artists, a juried group show held in the summer of 2001. Public collections in which this artist is represented include the Albrecht-Kemper Museum of Art, St. Joseph, MO; Arts Center of the Ozarks, Springdale, AK; Huntsville Museum of Art in Alabama; the Springfield Art Museum in Missouri; the Arkansas Arts Center; and Cornell University in Ithaca, NY. She currently lives in Vermont.
