Ben Shahn's mural, painted in 1940, shows the hardships of life before the establishment of Social Security, and its benefits--work, the family, and prosperity. Workers in various occupations are shown re-building America through public works projects. The murals are open to the public by appointment only. Call 202-619-3919 or email pubaff@voa.gov
