Portrait of Pete Seeger
With this remarkable collection of portraits, Shetterly intends to remind people of the dignity, courage and importance of some of America’s truthtellers and, whether or not you agree with a particular subject’s point of vie, to create dialogue that will help each of us figure out which truths we value most as citizens in a democracy. Shetterly will give a talk about this exhibit on Sunday, October 2nd at UUFES at 3 p.m.
