“I’ll Have What She’s Having”: The Jewish Deli
Exploring how American Jews imported traditions, adapted culture, and built community through the experience of food, “I’ll Have What She’s Having”: The Jewish Deli reveals how delicatessens became cornerstones of American Jewish food culture during the past century. By sharing the history of deli, the exhibition traces how delis evolved from specialty stores catering to immigrant populations into beloved national institutions. On view will be neon signs, menus, advertisements, fixtures, packaging, and photographs, while lively interactives invite visitors to engage with each other and connect with their own memories of deli.

Notorious RBG: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg
Notorious RBG: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg is the first-ever retrospective about the trailblazing associate justice and cultural icon, based on the popular Tumblr and bestselling book of the same name by journalist Irin Carmon and attorney Shana Knizhnik. Exploring the American judicial system through the lens of one of its sharpest legal minds, the exhibition takes an entertaining yet rigorous look at Justice Ginsburg’s life and work—in particular the efforts she joined to protect civil rights and expand equal opportunity for all Americans. Through archival photographs and documents, historical artifacts, contemporary art, media stations, and gallery interactives, the exhibition spans RBG’s varied roles as student, life partner, mother, lawyer, judge, women’s rights pioneer, and Internet phenomenon.
