LOS ANGELES (CIRCA) -- Ruth Bader Ginsburg has held many titles over the years: professor, judge, Supreme Court justice. But in recent years, she’s taken on a new title -- pop culture icon.
At the Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles, exhibition curators sought to celebrate that influence by creating a multisensory exhibit looking at the life, career, and cultural influence of the woman dubbed "Notorious RBG."
Justice Ginsburg has transcended her role on the bench to affect America in even more ways — inspiring art, movies, fashion, and even internet memes.
This was thanks in large part to a popular Tumblr page titled "Notorious RBG," which paid tribute to the justice's fiery dissents behind the Supreme Court bench by comparing her to fellow Brooklyn native, the rapper Notorious B.I.G.
Visitors, when they come to this exhibition, can expect to see a whole host of items. It is serious, and playful, and it looks at her life, her work, and how it's impacted the country.
Among the pieces on display at the "Notorious RBG" exhibit is a costume worn by actress Felicity Jones in the upcoming film "On the Basis of Sex," which depicts the true story of Ginsburg's fight against discrimination while working with the ACLU.
When Justice Ginsburg was a young attorney at the ACLU, she had a really difficult job -- she was fighting sex-based discrimination in the law. So I hope visitors feel inspired, but they also see the value in working really, really hard to effect whatever change or goals you may have.
