Ruth Bader Ginsburg Mural

Field review by the editors.

Washington, DC

Painted in late summer of 2019, two-story high Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg wears a pleasant smile and judicial robes with a decorative collar. The mural covers the outside wall of a woman-owned real estate company, and was created by a woman muralist, DC artist Rose Jaffe. Ginsburg appears to be releasing a flock of tiny birds from her hands, meant to inspire viewers to release their own creativity, dreams, etc.

In the immediate aftermath of Ginsburg's death in September 2020, the sidewalk in front of the mural was festooned with flowers, and the bottom part of the mural was covered with post-it note messages.

On the south side of U St. NW, just west of its intersection with 15th St. NW. The mural faces east, so it can only be seen if you're facing southwest. Tucked into an alley just west of the Bread Bite Bakery.
