The $Dollarocracy$ mosaic consists of two large, colorful mosaic panels on the outside of the ILWU union hall on Hegenberger created by Benny Bufano.

The mosaic was created in either 1965 or 1967. The large figure depicts "a bloated Pluto, and leitmotif of his life: Bufano's money consisted of his sculptures, which he bartered for essential services and his modest needs." 1
