Anacostia Neighborhood Museum

An exhibition on selected works by John N. Robinson and Larry Lebby. The exhibition, held at the Anacostia Neighborhood Museum, ran from November 14, 1982 - February 27, 1983. The title of the exhibition was taken from a John Robinson painting that depicts his grandchildren, sitting at his dining-room table, proudly showing their art and seeking his approval of their work. Robinson was a native of Washington, DC and Anacostia's urban environment; Lebby was born and raised in the rural community of Dixiana, South Carolina.
