Join us at the design bar to explore graphic design, circuitry, and craftivism while creating a dissent collar. Popularized by Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg, dissent collars with her robes on days when she cannot verbally express her disagreement with court majority decisions. We’ll kick off this workshop by admiring the dissent collars made by Roxana Alger Geffen on view in our Making Change exhibition,
Dissent collars, popularized by the notorious RBG (Ruth Bader Ginsberg), proclaim her dissenting opinion on supreme court majority decisions. After taking inspiration from dissent collars the dissent collars made by Roxana Alger Geffen on view in our Making Change exhibition, we’ll be creating our own. The material? Transcripts of supreme court decisions, of course!
We’ll craft our paper collars and then use innovative materials like conductive paint & LED lights to to make them sparkle and glow.
