Summary: talented artist, Emily Alber, has wowed the art community with a painting created as a tribute to the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Grosse Pointe Farms artist, Emily Alber, has attracted plaudits for her spectacular painting, inspired by Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Emily was first approached by Lynne Ganek, the creator of Emmy award-winning TV show, Reading Rainbow, nine months ago. Initially, she found it challenging to conjure up ideas for the commission, which would serve as a gift to the American University in Washington D.C. It wasn’t until Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg passed away that Emily found the inspiration she had been looking for. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg had always been a hero of Emily’s and she drew upon her emotional response to start painting.

Emily created the piece in her hometown of Grosse Pointe Farms, MI. During the pandemic, Emily left her job in Utah, and she decided to go into artistry full-time. Emily utilized her feelings, her sadness, and her reactions to the news of Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s passing, along with the hope and strength she embodied during her illustrious career to produce the unique painting.

Emily first met Lynne and Jeff Ganek while working at Deer Valley in Park City, Utah, and she was delighted to receive the call inviting her to create a new piece for the American University. The project was undertaken with input from artist Chelsea Cousineau and photographer Dante Dasaro. Limited edition prints of the original painting are available from Emily’s Etsy store. The artwork used for the prints was produced by Fusion Marketing.

The reaction

The reaction to Emily’s painting has been overwhelming. Lynne and Jeff Ganek presented the artwork as a gift to the College of Education where it will hang in the lobby. After completing the piece, Emily received an email from Dean Cheryl Holcomb-McCoy, which praised the painting and complemented its relevance to the university’s commitment to inclusion, diversity, and anti-racism.

The reason behind the painting

Emily wanted to create the painting to honor Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg because she felt it critical to preserve and celebrate her legacy, particularly at a time when politics was dividing the nation. The artist hopes that the prints created with John Hofmann, from Fusion Marketing, will help to inspire people and share Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s message for years to come.
