From his New Deal mural at Coit Tower to haunting visions of the Holocaust, the vibrant work of Jewish American artist Bernard Zakheim is getting a long overdue tribute. This segment visits the exhibit "Bernard Zakheim: The Art of Prophetic Justice," which features his paintings and sketches, and the artist's son Nathan takes us on a quest to uncover what may be a long-hidden mural. Zakheim's artwork will be on display at the Jazz Heritage Center in San Francisco through Dec. 11, 2010; a companion photo exhibit will be up through Dec. 30, 2010.
