“ICON”- tribute mural for the Notorious RBG. located on 2150 Market Street in Denver, CO. A legal, cultural and feminist icon, Ruth Bader Ginsburg changed the world and left a powerful legacy. She used her power in the Supreme Court to fight for gender equality, women's interests, and civil rights and liberties. She showed generations of Americans what it really looks like to be a strong woman. Now that she’s gone, the future of our country seems uncertain and at risk. It has a lot of us feeling uneasy. We must muster up the courage and continue her legacy by fighting for what is right and just. RBG once said, “To make life a little better for people less fortunate than you, that's what I think a meaningful life is. One lives not just for oneself but for one's community." As artists, we vow to live a life that is tremendously meaningful and pledge to work for the benefit of communities all throughout the country. #icon #ruthbaderginsburg #rbg #menaceresa #feminism #civilrights #life #liberty #pursuitofhappiness #denver #denvermurals #muralart #murals #graffitiart #graffmurals #power #tribute #tributeart #memorial #onedaybanger

    People should really do some research on this woman. She wasn’t the saint everyone thinks she is.
