Celebrating Aminah Robinson


Join us July 18 for A Celebration of Life: Aminah Robinson. This day-long event features many opportunities to remember and to celebrate Aminah.

A special exhibition of Aminah’s work is on view in the Forum. Guests of all ages can drop into CMA’s Center for Creativity for an Open Studio project that encourages people to remember Aminah by creating art inspired by their own history and community. Presentations about the artist and her work will take place in Cardinal Health Auditorium in the afternoon.

At 3:00 PM, friends and colleagues will share memories of Aminah during a special program that will include music by Arnett Howard and tributes from cultural leaders and organizations. A reception, featuring Aminah’s favorite treat Krispy Kreme donuts, follows in Derby Court. All are welcome.
