In 2019 the National Museum of American Jewish History commissioned me to create a personalized recognition piece to be presented to one of my heroes, Ruth Bader Ginsburg. The laser-cut art that I created bore an apt inscription from the Torah: Justice, Justice Shall You Pursue.
On December 23, 2019, the museum inducted Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the first Jewish woman to serve on the Supreme Court, into its “Only in America” gallery as the 21st honoree. The award recognizes American Jewish people whose achievements embody the cultural organization’s vision. The event was a focal point of the museum’s “Notorious RBG: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg” exhibit. The retrospective took viewers through the life, professional achievements and pop-culture-icon status of the trailblazing political and women’s rights figure, dubbed “Notorious RBG” in 2013, after giving a series of fiery dissents from the Supreme Court bench.
It was, and is, such an honor to have made a piece of artwork for the inimitable RBG.
Ruth Bader Ginsburg died on September 18, 2020. To honor her memory, I have created smaller, more affordable pieces exemplifying the dedication that Justice Ginsburg championed for minority & women's rights.
Both are inscribed with her commonly used title: Notorious RBG. One includes the inscription from the Torah: Justice, Justice Shall You Pursue. The other has the phrase: We are a nation made strong by people like you.
RIP Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
