Notorious RBG authors Irin Carmon and Shana Knizhnik will take the virtual stage via Zoom to share insights about their book, the Tumblr, and the transformative figure who inspired it all. Register online.


Notorious RBG: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg is the first-ever retrospective about the trailblazing associate justice and cultural icon, based on the popular Tumblr and bestselling book of the same name by journalist Irin Carmon and attorney Shana Knizhnik. Exploring the American judicial system through the lens of one of its sharpest legal minds, the exhibition takes an entertaining yet rigorous look at Justice Ginsburg’s life and work—in particular the efforts she joined to protect civil rights and expand equal opportunity for all Americans. Through archival photographs and documents, historical artifacts, contemporary art, media stations, and gallery interactives, the exhibition spans RBG’s varied roles as student, life partner, mother, lawyer, judge, women’s rights pioneer, and Internet phenomenon.
