Narrator Tara Sands immediately engages listeners with this biography of influential artist and activist Ben Shahn. Her expressive voice and contagious enthusiasm capture the story's energy and evoke the spirit of this inspirational man's life. Shahn developed a passion for drawing and a deep-seated aversion to social injustice at an early age. Years later, after his Jewish family emigrated from Lithuania, Shahn would merge these two obsessions into visual manifestations of the social conditions he observed in America. Interpreting what he admired most--stories of working-class people--Shahn flourished as a social realist who created powerful images advocating for justice, civil and political rights, and peace. Sands's skillful delivery encourages contemplation of Shahn's life and art, and its relevance for people today. S.A.A. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2022]
