‘Truth Tellers’: Film Screening and Q&A with Robert Shetterly and Richard Kane
Announcement from the public library in Blue Hill, Maine:
“The Blue Hill Public Library will sponsor a showing of the film Truth Tellers on Wednesday, August 31 at 7:00pm, followed by a Q&A with director/producer Richard Kane and artist/activist Robert Shetterly.
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.
This program is free and open to the public, and will be held in the Pearson Room. For more information, call the library at 374-5515 or contact Kayleigh at [email protected]”
