The Notorious RBG shuffled off this mortal coil one year ago today (September 18th, 2020), and she is sorely missed. Ruth Bader Ginsburg was a pioneer and a champion for women’s rights the likes of whom we need more of! Ruth’s legacy deserved so much more than for her to be replaced on the Supreme Court by a right wing ringer who’s never even tried a case (fuck!), but all we can do is move forward. We miss you, RBG!

The late Supreme Court Justice and champion of women’s rights, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, has been honored with a gorgeous collage mural depicting her face among vibrantly-colored, ┬áiconic images that reflect her wildly-accomplished career. Created by street artist Elle over a period of about ten-days in the first two weeks of November, the mural’s location at the southwest corner of First Avenue and 11th Street was formerly home to this mural by Shepard Fairey, which was completed in October of 2016. With the way this year has been going, we needed a fresh and inspiring new artwork in this space, and Elle really delivered.

The mural is close enough to my home that I was able to visit the site at various stages of completion; my very first sighting occurring on November 13th, during one of my twilight-time walks. What luck to also capture this very colorful graffiti box truck, which was parked on First Avenue at the time.
