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: Not Just A Service Movement
CONVO: Not Just A Service Movement
Crounse Hall – Vahlkamp Theatre, Danville KY

 
Not Just A Service Movement
Bobby Hackett, President of the Bonner Foundation, will talk about the importance of going beyond the service movement to one focused on solving problems confronting our communities. College students all across the country are encouraged to do community service because of the impact they can have on those communities. Bobby Hackett has been part of this movement for 35 years and has seen it transform thousands of students and hundreds of campuses. But he’s not convinced that we have transformed the communities in which we are serving. He’s proposing that we build on our longstanding relationships with community partners to focus on solving problems. He believes colleges and universities are uniquely positioned to leverage the energy and idealism of young people with their intellectual and technical training to understand the programs, systems, and policies that are at play in the community, and work in partnership with local community leaders to bring about lasting change.
