American’s Who Tell the Truth: Portraits by Robert Shetterly
Artist and activist Robert Shetterly will be in residence at Centre College as a Woodrow Wilson Visiting Fellow the week of February 19-23, when he will meet with students and exhibit his artwork. His extensive, ongoing portrait series, “Americans Who Tell the Truth,” highlights citizens who “courageously address issues of social, environmental, and economic fairness.” The portraits are painted in a realistic manner and inscribed with a relevant quote from the person. Sixteen portraits will be on display in the AEGON Gallery of the Jones Visual Arts Center on Centre’s campus. Along with well-known figures, many portraits are of unsung heroes, who work for what their conscience tells them is right. Issues in the following fields are addressed by those in the exhibit: human rights, civil rights, politics, peace, armed forces, domestic violence, health care, environmental damage, education, workers rights.

CONVO: China, North Korea, and the Nuclear Crisis
CONVO: China, North Korea, and the Nuclear Crisis
Young Hall – Auditorium (Room 113), Danville KY

 
Dealing with an Unruly Ally: China, North Korea, and the Nuclear Crisis
Dr. Michael Chambers, professor of political science at Indiana State University, will discuss the interesting and complicated relationship between China and North Korea. In the 1950s, thousands of Chinese “volunteers” died protecting North Korea during the Korean War, and these allies have described their friendship as being “as close as lips and teeth.” More recently, China has come to view its neighbor as unruly, even going so far as to vote in favor of United Nations sanctions on North Korea as punishment for their nuclear weapons tests. In light of increasing U.S. pressure on China and rumors of a preemptive strike on North Korea, this talk explores China’s impact on the prospects for a peaceful resolution to the North Korean nuclear crisis.
