With so much at stake on the Supreme Court, come explore the American judicial system through one of its sharpest legal minds. Coinciding with the twenty-fifth anniversary of her appointment to the high court, Notorious RBG: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg is the first-ever retrospective about the famed associate justice and American cultural icon. Based upon the New York Times bestselling book of the same name, it was created in partnership with the book’s co-authors: journalist Irin Carmon, a senior correspondent at New York magazine, and attorney Shana Knizhnik, who founded the popular Tumblr that earned Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg Internet fame (and amused the Justice herself). Like the book, the exhibition offers a visually rich, entertaining, yet rigorous look at RBG’s life and work. Through archival photographs and documents, contemporary art, media stations, and playful interactives, the exhibition tells the parallel stories of RBG’s remarkable career and the efforts she joined to expand “We the People” to include those long left out of the Constitution’s promises. By bringing to life RBG’s compelling biography and her commitment to our nation’s highest ideals, the exhibition invites visitors to participate in civic life and consider how the future of the Supreme Court impacts us all. Woven throughout the exhibition are briefs and other writings by RBG, including some of her most famously searing dissents. In keeping with the spirit of Carmon and Knizhnik’s book, the exhibition riffs off the playful connection between the Notorious RBG and Notorious B.I.G. (as she likes to point out, they were both born and bred in Brooklyn, New York): for example, the name of each gallery section alludes to a song or lyric from the late hip-hop artist. https://www.skirball.org/exhibitions/notorious-rbg-life-and-times-ruth-bader-ginsburg read less

The Inuit people have developed innovative and beautiful ways to survive in these harsh conditions. One tradition is the building of Inuksuk, a pile of stones that some think look like a person, which may have been used for navigation, as a marker for travel routes, fishing places, camps, hunting grounds, and to indicate special places. Join us in Culture Club as we make our own paper rock sculptures inspired by the Inuit Inuksuk! December 20- Winter Solstice – Yule Wreaths (3:00pm-4:00pm) Join us as we celebrate Winter Solstice, the day marking the shortest day and longest night of the year. In Northern Europe, people started the tradition of making wreaths out of evergreen branches to symbolize the year as a wheel. Join us today as we make our own wreaths from natural materials you can find in your own backyard! December 27- New Year’s Around the World (3:00pm-4:00pm) The New Year is upon us and there are so many ways to ring it in! In the United Stated, we often watch a giant ball drop, throw a big party, or cheers with a few friends. But did you know there are all kinds of ways to welcome in a new year? In Colombia people carry an empty suitcase around the block in hopes of a new year full of travel! Join us in Culture club as we create suitcase collages with images of all of the places you want to travel! We will also learn about fun traditions around the world, and match the tradition to the location on a collaborative map! January 3rd - January A Door to a New Year (3pm-4pm) January is the first month of the year. But why is it called January? It actually comes from Roman times descending from a word that means “portal” or “door.” Join us in Culture Club as we create our collage art that is a “Door to a New Year.” What awaits you behind your door? January 10th – Planting a seed for a Happy Year! (3pm-4pm) School is back in session, the celebrations have come to rest and it is a good time to think about what we each can do to make this year, and this world, and even better place for all! Families will work together to think of what they can to make the world a better place, whether that is picking up litter, saying something nice to a stranger, or helping out around the house! We will plant these “deeds” along with a small succulent cutting and care for our new plants as we build a happier world together! January 17th – Reach Out! (3pm-4pm) So the New Year is feeling far less new. At the Zimmer, we’ve made doors filled with our dreams for the future & we’ve even made promises to make the world a little bit better for ourselves and our family. But what about the rest of LA? How can we reach out and effect the community at large? One way is letter writing! Sending letters to your Mayor and elected officials is a great way to make your voice heard. Join us in our Art Room while we write letters to the Mayor even if you only know how to spell a few letters…. January 24th - - City of the Future (3pm-4pm) We love to learn about different traditions from people who have been thriving on these lands for centuries. But what will the future look like? Things haven’t always been this way. What do you imagine your city will look like in the future, while playing your way to a better world? Maybe, you’ll make more parks for families to enjoy some peace and quiet, or perhaps you’ll expand protections for our already beleaguered natural environment. Join us in Culture Club as we use find objects to turn our Art Room into a City of the Future. January 31st – National Inspire Your Heart with Art Day (3pm-4pm) National Inspire your Heart with Art Day is upon us! On this day, we encourage everyone to see a play, check out a new museum, listen to a symphony, witness a dance piece, or experience any art that your neighborhood has to offer. Join us as we paint to reflect our inner passions while learning about some of the exciting ways we can engage with a variety of Art Forms in good old Los Angeles. read less
