Works are grouped according to thematic content: portraits, cities and towns, the world at war, and views of nature. See how great artists of the late 19th and early 20th century presented time-honored themes in bold, innovative styles, such as Impressionism, Cubism, and Expressionism, which often shocked contemporaries.
Aminah Robinson & The Spirit of Home
August 12, 2pm
Take a behind-the-scenes tour of the newly renovated home studio of Columbus artist Aminah Brenda Lynn Robinson and see how the restoration has captured Aminah’s spirit and at the same time created a warm, comfortable space where artists can live and work. Home was sacred for the artist, who wrote, “Whenever I leave home to visit in another place, I carry in my soul the spirit of home.” Carole Genshaft, curator-at-large, and Deidre Hamlar, consultant, lead the tour and also serve as co- curators for the upcoming exhibition, Raggin’ On: The Art of Aminah Robinson’s House and Journals.
