Bobbleheads Exhibit Open House: Wednesday, March 2

All are invited to an open house this Wednesday, February 2, for the opening of the Law Library's 2016 spring exhibit:
"Equal Caricature Under Law: Supreme Court Bobbleheads by The Green Bag"

Wednesday, March 2, in the Riesenfeld Center (N30, Sub Plaza Level)

Open House: 12 noon - 4:00 p.m.

Snacks and refreshments will be served through the day.     

Artful and highly collectible, the Supreme Court bobbleheads depict historical and current justices with witty references to the justices' notable cases.  The bobbleheads are produced in limited runs, and are typically obtained only by receiving and redeeming a sought-after certificate.  The Law Library is proud to hold the only complete institutional collection of the figurines, apart from a similar collection at the Yale Law Library.  

The exhibit includes over 30 historical volumes drawn from the Riesenfeld Center's Arthur C. Pulling Rare Books Collection.  From the Federalist Papers to Brandeis's famous dissent in Olmstead v. United States, these volumes, and accompanying biographical information, highlight the featured justices' careers and their significant work.
