Curator’s comments

When Robinson was a child, her father introduced her to Columbus artists Roman Johnson (b. 1917).

Artist’s comments

Roman inspired me to go out to the street to draw, which I continue to do today. One day it was snowing, and Roman and I said, "Let's go out and draw." We went out in the car to the church at Fifth and Rich, where a long line of homeless people waited to get box lunches. We just sat in the car and drew. I drew on several sheets of homemade paper, and when I got home I sewed the pieces together.
