Exhibit features 25 works by the late Columbus artist Aminah Robinson

Since the beloved Columbus artist Aminah Brenda Lynn Robinson died in 2015, there have been many opportunities to see her vibrant historical and spiritual works.

Galleries and especially the Columbus Museum of Art, to whom Robinson bequeathed almost all of her estate, have presented her drawings, sculptures and multimedia works, notably in the comprehensive 2021 exhibit “Raggin On.” Is there anything left to see?

With Robinson, there’s always more to see.

Hammond Harkins Galleries, which represented the artist during her lifetime and owns a sizeable body of her work, is showing 25 pieces in the exhibit “Aminah Robinson: Mapping Histories.”

The exhibit, curated by Deidre Hamlar, director of the Aminah Robinson Legacy Project at the art museum, pairs significant works with the artist’s writings about them. The pieces span Robinson’s personal and ancestral history up to her interpretation of more current events.
