Remembering Aminah Robinson

A very long mural spans the side of a building near the Columbus Museum of Art. It's the work of Aminah Robinson, a MacArthur Foundation grant recipient, who died last month at 75. She grew up drawing and making art out of anything she could get her hands on, including cloth, paper bags and buttons. Much of it was about life in the Poindexter Village neighborhood. It's all there on this mural, which faces a parking lot. To park there must surely brighten one's day. Thank you Aminah for this bit of everyday art.
