On September 18, 2020, less than two months before what might be the most important election in the history of our country, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg passed away. This iconic groundbreaking lawmaker and feminist was one of several American leaders that the Victory Garden Collective looked to for inspiration as it began creating publicly-engaged art projects that aimed to “initiate conversation and action.”
As our country declined into political turmoil since the 2016 election, people worldwide began using RBG’s image and words to galvanize them in the fight for justice. Upon her passing, May Her Memory Be A Revolution, became a shared moniker for the collective loss felt, and an acknowledgment of the truly revolutionary life she led.
In honor of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg and the decades long work she did to defend our human rights, Victory Garden offers you May Her Memory Be A Revolution. Gaze at your reflection in this mirror and let the memory of Ruth’s fortitude and strength inspire you to rise up and defend our democracy every day.
