Raggin' On: The Art of Aminah Brenda Lynn Robinson's House and Journals
"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 can explore their own stories and peruse Robinson's journals.
