Artist Roxana Alger Geffen leads a creative evening of craftivism, conversation, and civic engagement. This Salon Night includes everything you need to make your own RBG-inspired dissent collar. Start the evening with a gallery talk with Geffen in Notorious RBG: The Life & Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Geffen will highlight two pieces from her Dissent Collar Series featured in the exhibit. Next, Geffen will demonstrate the process of creating a dissent collar, then put your learning to work and craft your own! No artistic experience needed!

Tickets include all supplies, admission to the exhibition Notorious RBG: The Life & Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and 1 drink (additional drinks and food available for purchase).

Must be 21 or older to attend and present a valid ID at the door. Space is limited.
