Sierra Club Instagram Auction

Ruth Bader Ginsburg Portrait, 2020 (closed)

Sierra Club Independent Action helps to elect leaders in the US who put our climate first.
This was an Instagram Auction of Ruth Bader Ginsburg Glass Cathedral “The Dissenter’s Hope“.

I made the first edition of this artbox in July 2020 - praying for RBG's good health.

The day after RBG died, September 19th 2020, I auctioned this Glass Cathedral to raise funds for the Sierra Club's get out the vote campaign. Not only did the box go for $1600, but three other people stepped up to match the donation if I made them an edition too. So $6400 was donated. It consoled me to think of a squad of tiny RBGs now out there in the world, still making an impact.

The title comes from RBG's oft quoted words:
"…that’s the dissenter’s hope: that they are writing not for today, but for tomorrow…” – Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, NPR interview, 2002
At this moment, with a few days to go before the most consequential U.S. election in living memory, I trust that the dissenting opinion will find its majority.
