Artist and activist Robert Shetterly, a Woodrow Wilson Visiting Fellow with the Council of Independent Colleges (CIC), will conduct classes and deliver a public lecture during a week-long visit to Transylvania University, January 28-February 1. Shetterly's lecture, "Truth, Courage, and the Spirit of Democracy," is on Wednesday, Jan. 30, at 7:30 p.m. in Coleman Recital Hall in the Mitchell Fine Arts Center. It is free and open to the public. Shetterly taught himself drawing, printmaking and painting after attending Harvard University. For 12 years he illustrated the editorial page drawings for the Maine Times, the National Audubon Society's children's newspaper, Audubon Adventures, and more than 30 books. Much of his current work focuses on working with the activists trying to bring an end to the practice of mountaintop removal by coal companies in Appalachia.
