Ruth Bader Ginsberg Loved The Arts. Artists Respond to Her Death With Love, Fear, Anger and Action

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg, who died yesterday at age 87, was a life-long lover of the arts, including theater. Her mother introduced her to  the Brooklyn Academy of Music which was “my dream place as a child,” she said in a 2012 profile, which noted: “When talking about art—whether visual, theater, or opera—she smiles often and easily recalls decades-old memories of plays and concerts.”

(Bates was in the cast of “On The Basis of Sex,” the 2018 feature film about Ginsburg.)
