The Greater Columbus Arts Council has announced the opening of applications for the 2022 Aminah Brenda Lynn Robinson Fellowship.
Launched in 2020, the fellowship celebrates the legacy of the late Columbus artist Aminah Robinson, who was known for channeling the experiences of her African ancestors through drawings, woodcuts and complex sculptures.
Opinion: Columbus’ Aminah Robinson filled ‘blank pages’ with joys, horrors experienced by African Americans
In recognizing the work of Columbus-based visual artists, the 90-day program includes an unrestricted $15,000 grant, community outreach activities and an opportunity for a public presentation or exhibit.
The application deadline is Nov. 8, and will be juried by representatives from the Shepard and Poindexter neighborhoods where Robinson lived, the Columbus Museum of Art, the Greater Columbus Arts Council and an artist or arts educator familiar with Robinson’s prolific work and history.
