Painter and social activist Robert Shetterly will talk about the trajectory of his Americans Who Tell the Truth project, a series of portraits and narratives that highlight citizens who courageously address issues of social, environmental, and economic fairness. He will discuss the project's origin, its growth, and its lessons, and talk about the many people who have become part of the project.
Shetterly will show some of the portraits during his presentation and highlight some of the people he has painted, what they've meant to him, and what they mean to all of us. He reminds us that as much as this project is about history and activism, courage and persistence, it's first, about art.
Presented by Acadia Senior College.
