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.

Ain’t Nobody Got Time for That: Addressing Racism and Personal Identity on College Campuses
With more students of color attending colleges and universities every year, schools such as Centre need an updated lens to talk about race and diversity on campus. This participatory workshop breaks down stereotypes, uses ‘conscious comedy,’ and engages students, faculty, and staff in new conversations about race, identity, and privilege. Using videos, break-out discussions, and facilitating honest conversations, students will be given social tools to deconstruct interpersonal, as well as institutional patterns of oppression, so as to heal and proactively address concerns as young agents of change. The Convocation will be led by members of the musical groups Las Cafeteras and Orkesta Mendoza as part of GlobalFest.
