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.
