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.
