Tyler and I spent the afternoon at the Columbus Museum of Art where my number one favorite artist of all time, Aminah Robinson, was doing a story time Q&A event. She read her book A Street Called Home about the local characters from her childhood in Columbus. Before the festivities she signed some books for me AND she remembered me from the first time we met almost five years ago! She recalled the paper mache pin that I made for her and in exchange she gifted me with some buttons from her collection. And she was excited to hear that I have used those buttons in my own quilts. Aminah is the reason I went to college at CCAD and her work will have an impact on everything that I make for the rest of my life, so I could not pass up the opportunity to have my picture taken with her!
Tyler got to see some Chuck Jones cells of Coyote, the Roadrunner, and Porky Pig while we were at the museum. He's the biggest animation fan ever!
