May 9, 1976 – June 13, 1976

John N. Robinson began to paint at the age of twelve and studied art with Professors James V. Herring and James A. Porter at Howard University. In the late 1920s, he moved from northwest Washington, DC to Anacostia, a neighborhood in the city’s southeast. Inspired by daily life in Anacostia, he painted family, neighbors, landscapes and lilacs.

The Anacostia Neighborhood Museum presents this retrospective in cooperation with the Corcoran Gallery of Art, part of the Corcoran’s Bicentennial year series featuring the work of Washington, DC artists. The exhibition will be at the Corcoran Gallery of Art from June 18 through July 30, 1976.

The Evolution of a Community, Part 2: 1955-Present
September 1, 1972 – December 31, 1972

Anacostia, a neighborhood in southeast Washington, DC, faces challenges familiar to many contemporary urban communities. A survey of community residents revealed five major topics of deep concern, including housing, unemployment, education, crime, and drugs. This exhibition, The Evolution of a Community, is in essence a cultural-history study of Anacostia, DC. It concerns a specific community and its involvement in self-education. We believe it to be an exhibition of some importance because today the communities of urban America are changing so rapidly that material dealing with their nature is of great value to those who must deal with the people, and who must attempt to solve people-problems here and now. Anacostia, DC, is one of the many communities that have become an area of old and new urban problems. We must understand the nature of these problems in order to deal with them effectively, and in a short span of time.
