Hear from the artist as she discusses RBG Collars: Photographs by Elinor Carucci, an installation of two dozen photographs of the late U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s collars and necklaces on view as part of Scenes from the Collection. The installation also includes jewelry from the collection, reflecting freely on the expressive possibilities as well as the cultural and religious aspects of adornment. 

The gallery talk planned to mark the late Justice’s 91st birthday will be followed by a book signing and reception in the museum shop and lobby for the companion volume The Collars of RBG: A Portrait of Justice by Elinor Carucci and Sara Bader.

Free with Museum Admission; RSVP recommended
