At the Columbus Museum of Art in 2002,  Aminah Robinson sits in a chair she created.

This week, the Columbus Museum of Art is honoring legendary artist Aminah Robinson, whose work is featured in the current CMA exhibition, "Raggin’ On: The Art of Aminah Brenda Lynn Robinson’s House and Journals." The artist, who died in 2015, would turn 81 on Feb. 18, and to celebrate Robinson's birthday week, the museum is offering a week of programming.

Tonight (Tuesday, Feb. 16) at 7 p.m., the Bexley Public Library is hosting a virtual conversation about the exhibition with CMA curators Carole Genshaft and Deidre Hamlar.
