Artist Talk with Robert Shetterly
October 27, 2022 - 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM
For twenty years Robert Shetterly has been painting the series of portraits Americans Who Tell the Truth (AWTT). Paintings from this series have been traveling around the country since 2003. Venues have included university museums, grade school libraries, sandwich shops, the Cathedral of Saint John the Divine in New York City, and the Superior Court in San Francisco. To date, the exhibits have visited 26 states.
The portraits have given Shetterly an opportunity to speak with children and adults all over this country about the necessity of dissent in a democracy, the obligations of citizenship, sustainability, US history, and how democracy cannot function if politicians don’t tell the truth, if the media don’t report it, and if the people don’t demand it.
