Robert Shetterly is best known for his portrait series, Americans Who Tell the Truth, which highlights individuals throughout history who have stood up for social, environmental, and economic justice. Mr. Shetterly will introduce us to some of the civil rights figures he has painted, and will discuss how they advocated for civil rights and why they were compelled to do it.
This event is free and open to the public. Robert Shetterly will also be presenting the annual Martin Luther King Day Lecture at the Emerson's Crawford Theater at 7:00 pm on Tuesday, January 20th. http://calendar.msu.montana.edu/events/14318
