Opportunity for USA African American visual artists to participate in a residency to develop a work in progress. Funding is intended for artists who produce works deeply rooted in storytelling, cultural traditions, and heritage. Funding is also intended to provide an artist with the gift of time to develop the work and connect to resources related to the work of MacArthur Fellow Aminah Brenda Lynn Robinson.
The Aminah Brenda Lynn Robinson Residency (Aminah Residency) celebrates the legacy of the late Columbus artist and provides a U.S. based African American visual artist a 90-day residency in the Columbus, Ohio home of the late Aminah Brenda Lynn Robinson.
Community outreach activities (facilitated by Arts Council staff) are required and artists will have the opportunity for a public presentation and/or exhibition.
