Ruth Bader Ginsburg exhibit premieres at Maltz Museum: Talk of the Towns –

Posted By on January 30, 2021

BEACHWOOD, Ohio -- The Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage announces the highly anticipated Cleveland premiere of Notorious RBG: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, presented locally by PNC Bank.

This is the first-ever exhibition about the trailblazing Supreme Court justice. Based on the New York Times bestselling book of the same name and created in partnership with its authors, Irin Carmon and Shana Knizhnik, the exhibition takes a deeply personal journey through historic change with an entertaining yet rigorous look at the life and work of Ruth Bader Ginsburg (RBG) and the Supreme Court.

It also examines Ginsburgs varied roles as a student, life partner, mother, change-making lawyer, judge, womens rights pioneer and pop culture icon.

Notorious RBG will be on view at the Maltz Museum from Feb. 24 through Aug. 29. For more information or to purchase tickets, call 216-593-0575 or visit

The exhibition was organized by the Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles. Through archival photographs and documents, historical artifacts, contemporary art, media stations and gallery interactives, the exhibition explores the American legal system and civil rights movements through the lens of RBGs personal experiences and public service.

Like the book, it tells the parallel stories of her remarkable life and the efforts she joined to expand We the People to include those long left out of the Constitutions promises.

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg embodied the Jewish value of respect for all humanity, said David Schafer, managing director of the Maltz Museum in Beachwood.

The Maltz Museum expresses the same value, as we work toward a more inclusive, just, and civil society, he said. We are honored to share the justices story with visitors, in person and online.

In keeping with Carmon and Knizhniks book, the exhibition will touch on the playful connection between Justice Ginsburg and the Notorious B.I.G. -- both of whom were born and bred in Brooklyn, N.Y., as RBG herself has proudly pointed out.

In celebration of opening week, the Maltz Museum is offering $5 tickets Feb. 24-28, available for purchase over the phone or online.

Visitors can tour the Notorious RBG exhibition in person at the Maltz Museum from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday by timed tickets, which can be purchased over the phone or online in advance.

Masks are required for entry and social distancing is enforced.

General admission is $12. Students and seniors, $10; children 5-11, $5; children younger than 5 and Maltz Museum members, free. The museum is located at 2929 Richmond Road, Beachwood.

As part of an ongoing outreach effort to connect visitors to the Maltz Museum during the pandemic, virtual visitors also can explore Notorious RBG online. Approximately 60 minutes in length, virtual attendees will enjoy a webinar-style, narrated exploration of key objects and artifacts, followed by a docent-led Q&A. Virtual tours will be offered on the first and third Tuesday of each month at 2 p.m. The cost is $10 per person.

Located approximately 20 minutes from downtown Cleveland, the Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage is an award-winning building crafted from Jerusalem stone and glass walls, uniquely set into the landscape.

Housing two permanent collections and a gallery dedicated to presenting world-class special exhibitions, the Maltz Museum is rooted in the Jewish value of respect for all humanity, telling universal stories of hope, perseverance and resilience that educate, inform and inspire a more just, civil and inclusive society.

Virtual career fair: Military Hire, Job Zone and USAA (United Services Automobile Association) are teaming together to host Military Hires first virtual career fair from 2 to 6 p.m. Feb. 10, with a focus on information technology and cybersecurity careers.

USAA is proud to host the first virtual job fair of Military Hire, said Roy Lopez of USAA. We are a strong proponent of the U.S. veteran, and this initiative to drive employment for veterans is certainly one we support.
