November 21, 2020 – October 3, 2021
UPDATE: Due to the recent developments in the widespread increase in COVID-19 cases in Central Ohio, the Columbus Museum of Art (CMA) has decided to take a community health break and will temporarily close, effective Saturday, Nov. 21. This temporary closure is best for our community to get through the critical weeks ahead. We will continue to monitor the situation closely and will announce a reopening date when appropriate.
Patrons who have already purchased tickets to visit the museum in the coming weeks will be contacted directly and will receive refunds.
Updates are available at www.columbusmuseum.org and through CMA’s social media channels. CMA will continue to share ways to stay connected from home through creative challenges, virtual programs and more.
In 2015, Aminah Brenda Lynn Robinson bequeathed almost her entire estate to CMA. For several years, CMA documented that gift and the vast amount of art, journals, and other ephemera that remained in her house. Raggin’ On: The Art of Aminah Brenda Lynn Robinson’s House and Journals is the first major exhibition of the artist’s work since her death and a celebration of Robinson’s work, vision and the home, and neighborhood she cherished.
Raggin’ On presents seven decades of Aminah Robinson’s art and writing. The exhibition invites visitors to experience the artist’s home and creative processes and to better understand her intention “to celebrate the everyday lives and culture of Black people and their endurance through centuries of injustice.” In addition to Robinson’s art, this exhibition includes furnishings she made for her house; books from her impressive library; collections of buttons, fabrics, canes, dolls, and thimbles; art she traded with other artists; and photo enlargements of her living spaces and studios. Complementing the visceral experience reflective of the artist’s home, visitors will explore their own stories and peruse Robinson’s journals.
