A bronze statue of late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg will be unveiled in her hometown next year. The statue, which was created with Ginsburg's participation and approval, will be located at City Point Brooklyn, the commercial and residential complex announced this week.
The statue will be unveiled on March 15, 2021, which is Ginsburg's birthday and also falls during Women's History Month. Ginsburg, who died last month due to complications of metastatic pancreas cancer, would have turned 88 on her next birthday.
The statue was created by artists Gillie and Marc as a part of their "Statues for Equality" project. The artistic duo has created and commissioned dozens of statues of famous women for public spaces in cities around the world.
The couple said their final statue of Ginsburg, "which she endorsed, reflects her wish to be depicted in a dignified manner."
"With the two steps on its large base representing the Supreme Court and the climb she made to get there, the work is designed to provide the public with an opportunity to stand at her side, and gain inspiration from her journey fighting for equal rights," the artists said.
To mark the occasion, Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams will declare March 15 Justice Ginsburg Day in Brooklyn, City Point Brooklyn said in a press release. "No one can dispute the towering achievements of this judicial giant and the value of adding her likeness to the landscape of our city," Adams said in the release.

Will this statue be as immune to toppling frenzies as, say, a Lenin stature?

Well, if there’s one thing we’ve learned from the Left over the past year, it’s perfectly acceptable to destroy public art that you don’t like.
I was in law school when Clinton nominated her. Nobody knew who she was. Few cared. It was assumed that she was a standard Leftist from Central Casting or Clinton would not have nominated her. This celebration of her “remarkable life” is a complete joke much like the forced cringe meme of the Notorious RBG. The Left is trying to make a legend in real time.
Reminds one of Montgomery Burns.
Tear it down!!
Idolatry. A better choice would have been Mother Theresa. Not some feminazi abortion loving witch.
Next they’ll be putting up statues of mooochelle obama.
Tear it Down!
Tear it Down!
Tear it Down!
Tell the MOB it is a Statue of a WHITE Supreme-Court-acist!
