Go Ask Alice

“Self-Portrait with Rabbit” by Aminah Brenda Lynn Robinson (1959) @ Columbus Museum of Art

No less instructive is the story, ‘Pooh Goes Visiting,’ in which Rabbit, having deceitfully offered Pooh admittance to sample his overstocked larder, artfully traps his victim in the doorway and exploits him as an unsalaried towel rack for an entire week.

Another new discovery from our recent day trip: Aminah Brenda Lynn Robinson, a local Columbus, OH artist who left her entire estate to the Columbus Museum of Art, after dedicating her life and art (which she had been obsessed about since the age of 3) to the task of capturing Black history in Africa and America in every medium she possibly could.

As a longtime fan of Pooh and his fluffy, stuffy friend, not to mention Lewis Carroll’s famous white lagomorph, I couldn’t help but be drawn in by this one.
