“Artist/activist Robert Shetterly has painted 255 portraits of Americans, past and present, who had the moral courage to confront issues of social, environmental and economic justice. These Americans Who Tell the Truth have been exhibited throughout the United States for almost two decades. Truth Tellers is both a story of Shetterly’s art and activism and a history lesson in what it means to be a citizen of a democracy. In bringing Shetterly’s message to a wide audience, Truth Tellers will spark a national conversation on truth telling.”

The event is being held in honor of the life and legacy of Dr. Terry Beitzel, and in partnership with Justice Studies, the Gandhi Center, AAAD, CMSS, Community Service Learning, the Cohen Center for the Humanities, and the Honors College.
