Exhibit At The Y.M.I Should Not Be Missed: “Americans Who Tell The Truth”

The YMI Cultural Center is currently exhibiting a diverse cross-section of 52 portraits from the “Americans Who Tell the Truth” portrait project.   The portraits, painted by artist Robert Shetterly, form an extraordinarily powerful and inspiring civic engagement/traveling art exhibition.
This collection of paintings now contains portraits of 210 courageous truth-tellers, both historical and current day. These include Eleanor Roosevelt, Harriet Tubman, Ella Baker, and Martin Luther King, Jr., as well as contemporary figures such as Muhammad Ali, Bill Moyers, Wendell Berry, Bill McKibben, and Lily Yeh.
Every one I talk with who has seen this show can’t stop talking about how incredible it is. Make sure you set aside plenty of time. Unfortunately the exhibit is not well advertised, so help spread the word.
