Description

Photograph of Professor Stefan Hirsch with students Irene Zimmerman '48 and Beverly Pruzan '48. The group is standing in front of a mural in South Hall, the student's senior project. 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. This photograph was likely used as Bard College promotional material.
