CRT is seeking proposals from artists to create a massive public mural as a visual tribute to the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and other strong women who have made significant contributions to the advancement of women and social justice. The mural will be painted at 330 Market Street, Hartford – home of CRT’s Women’s Empowerment Center.

An enormous mural featuring the late U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor and former First Lady Michelle Obama will soon be appearing in Hartford at CRT’s Women’s Empowerment Center at 330 Market St. in Hartford.

CRT recently announced plans to rename its Women’s Empowerment Center after Ginsburg, and now we have put out a call for artists to submit a design for this mural project. The brick wall is about 105 feet wide, and from the ground the height available is 29 feet, so the total mural size could be massive.

Lena Rodriguez, president and CEO of CRT, spearheaded the drive to rename the building and to create the mural.

“The work she has done and the barriers she has gone through paved the way for women in law, women in social justice, all women and all people in general,” Rodriguez said. “Learning about her passing was really hard. I thought, what could we do as a state to honor her?”
