Abstract
The mural, of which this image shows one part, represents immigrants entering through Ellis Island. The most recognizable figure is Albert Einstein who arrived as a refugee in 1933. The panel also shows workers in the garment industry, crowded tenements and Sacco and Vanzetti in their coffins. Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti were Italian-American anarchists who were executed in 1927, many believed unjustly. Ben Shahn, the primary artist, was commissioned by the New Deal's Farm Security Administration. Photographed in 1971.
