    A vital figure in the arts and culture of her native Columbus, Aminah Brenda Lynn Robinson created paintings, books, sculptures, and multimedia works that communicate memory and history with power and determination. In 1990, she created her Clutch of Blossoms series, describing it as “is a body of work about women I have known and women whom I have admired through the years. It's mothers and daughters—it's a celebration of womanhood.” This piece represents Edmonia Lewis, who was the first professional African American sculptor and spent most of her career in Rome.
