Truth Tellers documentary presentation

May 22, 2022 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm


*All events are FREE, but we do ask that you please register so that we can monitor attendance and venue capacity.*

What defines a great American? For artist/activist Robert Shetterly, it’s a citizen who courageously confronts issues of social, environmental and economic fairness. Shetterly has painted 250 portraits of such Americans, past and present, with a quote inscribed into the dark background. 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 ICRCM requires all guests to wear face coverings. View policy under “Museum Protocols”.** 4/5/22

Companion event: Images of Justice and Power with Malaika Adero, St. Clair Detrick-Jules, and Robert Shetterly
