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.

Diversity, Service, & Leadership Weekend
Centre College, Danville KY

 
The Admission Office invites senior high school students passionate about issues regarding race, ethnicity, religion, the LGBTQ community, class, and community service to attend this weekend of workshops. Our theme this year will be “Identity;” students planning to attend the weekend should expect to explore different facets of their own identity as well as learn from others participating in the weekend. Be ready to engage in conversation with our faculty, students, and each other! Students interested in the New Horizons Scholarship and Bonner Scholars Program are strongly encouraged to attend. We encourage students to arrive early on Friday in order to observe a class, interview with an admission representative, and meet with a professor. Students are also highly encouraged to stay Friday night.

The HillBenders
The HillBenders
Norton Center for the Arts – Weisiger Theatre, Danville KY

 
The HillBenders perform The Who’s Tommy, a bluegrass opry
“Ever since I was a young boy I played the silver ball…”
 
Maybe not your standard bluegrass lyric, but a line known by all the world from the biggest rock opera of all time, The Who’s Tommy. Forty-five years after its original release, this classic of classic rock has now been fully realized as a full-length bluegrass tribute featuring Springfield, Missouri’s The HillBenders. Conceived and produced by SXSW co-founder and longtime musician/producer Louis Jay Meyers, this Bluegrass Opry brings a new perspective to Tommy while paying total respect to its creators. With a perfect mix of virtuoso musicianship and rock star vocals, audiences can expect to hear banjo, dobro, mandolin, bass, and guitar played with the same energy and vision as The Who did with a full rock band and orchestra.
