Join us for the first-ever museum exhibition focused solely on this judicial icon. This exhibit at the Illinois Holocaust Museum & Education Center is a vibrant exploration of Justice Ginsburg’s life and her numerous roles as student, wife, mother, lawyer, judge, women’s rights pioneer, and Internet phenomenon.The virtual "Notorious RBG" is a video presentation of Curator, Arielle Weininger discussing the history of RBG and the exhibition,
After the video there will be a live Q&A session with a docent. This exhibition was developed by Associate Curator at Los Angeles Skirball Cultural Center, Cate Thurston, in partnership with Irin Carmon and Shana Knizhnik, co-authors of the NewYork Times bestselling book, Notorious RBG: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Briefs and other writings by RBG, including some of her famously searing dissents, are woven throughout the exhibit. In keeping with the spirit of Carmon and Knizhnik’s book, the exhibition riffs off the playful connection between Notorious RBG and rapper Notorious B.I.G. The name of each gallery section alludes to a song or lyric from the late hip-hop artist.
