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.

Kai Roberts: Mental Health through Music
Kai Roberts’ presentation, “Active Mic: Mental Health through Music” is an original interactive performance created to promote mental health awareness in an entertaining and educational way. Kai tells the story of his battle with anxiety and panic disorder through interactive dialogue and hip-hop music. From the beginning, the audience is engrossed in the origins of his anxiety, gradually taking the journey into his emotions, through his disorder, and into his recovery.
