Screening of the Robert Shetterly documentary "Truth Tellers" - PLEASE NOTE VENUE CHANGE

Tuesday, October 10, 2023

Join us this evening for a showing of the documentary, Truth Tellers.  Robert Shetterly is a Maine artist and world activist, and will be visiting Orono on November 1, at the Orono High School's Performing Arts Center.

"Artist/activist Robert Shetterly has painted over 250 portraits of great Americans and etched inspiring quotes into the backgrounds of each. From the fight to remove symbols of hate to sustainability and climate activism, and from whistleblowing to the rights of indigenous people, Shetterly uses his art to explore these activists’ response to some of the most pressing issues of our time. From contemporary activists for racial justice Bree Newsome, Zyahna Bryant and Rev. Lennox Yearwood, to climate activists Bill McKibben, Kelsey Juliana, and Bill Bigelow, Shetterly puts them in the context of our great civil rights leaders John Lewis, Fannie Lou Hamer and Bayard Rustin. Truth Tellers is both a story of Shetterly’s art and activism and a history lesson of what is required of a citizen in a democracy." - cover of DVD.
