Exhibition Exploration – Celebrating Life & Culture in Oil Pastel with Hilda Robinson

Didn’t We Have Fun! is a vibrant, colorful children’s picture book that looks at African-American family life and culture, seen through the eyes of a celebrated artist. The text is by Jeff Kunkel, based on interviews with Hilda.

The images of family life, reading, studying, chores, playground games, and neighborhood social events are rich and warmly drawn in a jazzy, impressionistic style.

“Anyone from any background will be able to relate to the celebration of childhood, family nurturing, faith, love and community expressed in this book. You will treasure it for a lifetime.”
– Dr. Terri Renee Jett
