You don’t have to enter the Maltz Museum building to go inside the special exhibition, Notorious RBG: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, presented locally by PNC Bank. Explore the gallery from the comfort of your own home when you join us for a virtual gallery talk that focuses on a specific artifact representing a particular part of RBG’s life and legacy.

Reach across the aisle this April, in the spirit of Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Antonin Scalia, and their famous friendship that overcame political divides. “They had a bond, I think, in that they both grew up as outsiders — to different degrees — to the elites who had ruled the country: she as a Jew and woman, he as a Catholic and Italian American,” wrote Scalia’s son, Eugene, in an article for the Washington Post. “The two disagreed vigorously the rest of their lives on some of the most important things,” he explained. “Not for a moment did one think the other should be condemned or ostracized.” Join civil-rights attorney Ashlie Case Sletvold, president of the William K. Thomas American Inn of Court and founder The Ginsburg-Scalia Project, advancing the practice of civility, to explore a friendship that’s inspiring a movement.
