Photograph of a mural in South Hall, painted by Beverly Pruzan '48 and Irene Zimmerman '48 under the direction of Professor Stefan Hirsch. The mural, done in egg tempera, is entitled "Youth Groping For Reality", and is divided into three segments: "Rejection" (right), "Enlightenment" (center), and "Search" (left). The mural echoes the socialist realist style that was synonymous with public muralism executed by the Works Progress Administration and the Treasury Relief Art Project in the 1930's.
