Nine Ben Shahn prints from the permanent collection are featured in this exhibition, highlighting a portfolio of fine art prints created by Shahn for the Lawyers Constitutional Defense Committee of the American Civil Liberties Union in 1965. Shahn (1898-1969) was a Lithuanian-born American artist best known for his works of social realism, his left-wing political views, and his series of lectures published as The Shape of Content. His art often referred to cases of social injustice, and the examples from the permanent collection reflect his keen interest in the Civil Rights Movement.
