A Visit To Monticello
Reflections on our current national reckoning with race from artist and
narrative activist Rob Shetterly. His ongoing portrait series, Americans Who
Tell the Truth, honors 0ver 240 U.S. activists, artists, and political
leaders, past and present, in 3-feet-by-2-1/2-feet paintings that extol the
subjects’ work and legacy to forge “a more perfect union” and a more livable
world. The portraits have given Shetterly an opportunity to speak with
children and adults all over this 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 don’t report it, and if the people don’t demand it. For many years he
has graciously lent several paintings each summer to grace the walls at
World Fellowship’s Lloyd Lodge. Rob lives, with his partner Gail Page, also
a painter, in Brooksville, Maine.
