Musgnug's solo exhibitions have been on display in national and international art museums including Texas' Galveston Arts Center and the Marko Cepenkov Center of Culture in Prilep, Macedonia. According to the artist's page at, “Kristin Musgnug's paintings spring from an interest in the complex interactions between people and nature … . The work draws on her interest in the scientific view of nature as well as the role nature occupies in the human psyche.”
