Robert Shetterly Gallery Talk

October 22 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

For Educators

Area educators are invited to join us for a free gallery talk with artist Robert Shetterly, whose exhibition, Americans Who Tell the Truth is on view at the Museum of Art – DeLand.

For twenty years, Robert Shetterly has been painting the series of portraits he calls Americans Who Tell the Truth. The exhibition has been traveling around the country since 2003. Venues have included everything from university museums and grade school libraries to sandwich shops, the Cathedral of Saint John the Divine in New York City, and the Superior Court in San Francisco. In 2005, Dutton published a book of the portraits by the same name. In 2006, the book won the top award of the International Reading Association for Intermediate non-fiction.

The portraits have given Shetterly an opportunity to speak with children and adults all over the 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 doesn’t report it, and if the people don’t demand it.
