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.

Las Cafeteras and Orkesta Mendoza — globalFEST on the Road: The New Golden Age of Latin Music
The New Golden Age of Latin Music is being forged right here in the U.S. with Mexican-American communities emerging as hotbeds of musical creativity, blending upbeat styles that reflect shared cultural identities. Orkesta Mendoza and Las Cafeteras are two of today’s most exciting groups forging inspired new paths for Latin and Latin-American music. The infectious indie-mambo band Orkesta Mendoza mixes a multitude of Latin styles like cumbia, merengue, and ranchera, through a funky mambo and post-punk prism, creating a truly one-of-a-kind sound. Alternative Chicano band Las Cafeteras recreate traditional Afro-Caribbean Son Jarocho music in a wildly vibrant style. Their rousing socially-conscious messages, in English and Spanglish, tell stories of a community that is looking for love and fighting for justice, and have audiences dancing in their seats.
