Powerful Immigrant Family Design by Barbara Fox
The reverse design was created by Barbara Fox and sculpted by Phebe Hemphill. In the foreground is a family of immigrants who are arriving at Ellis Island in New York Harbor after what was almost certainly a challenging trans-Atlantic journey. A woman holds a bag filled with everything that the family took with them to the New World, while her son stands holding an American flag as they approach the island. In the background is the immigration processing building, where they hope that they will be granted admission into the United States to begin their lives anew.
