What: Americans Who Tell the Truth Celebration
Where: Peterborough, New Hampshire (Depot Park and Mariposa Museum)
When: October 17, 2021, 3:00 - 6:00 p.m.
Join us in celebrating the achievements of these American truth-tellers in a special indoor-outdoor event!
The current AWTT exhibit at Mariposa Museum and World Cultural Center features paintings by Maine artist Robert Shetterly honoring men and women who have stood up for social, environmental, and economic justice during the last three centuries of American life. The portraits are part of a collection of more than 200 portraits created by Robert over the last decade.
From 3 to 4 pm, embark on a randonnée musicale (musical walk) through Depot Park to the Mariposa featuring live music by local musicians highlighting songs by Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger, Pat Humphries, and Bernice Johnson as well as their own work.
From 4 to 5, join us inside the museum to view the exhibit, enjoy light fare (including slow food inspired by truth teller Alice Waters).
And from 5 to 6, artist Robert Shetterly will give a talk (live and also on zoom) about his Americans Who Tell the Truth project.
While the outdoor portion of this event is free, donations in support of this event and Mariposa's work towards equity and social justice are greatly appreciated.
Thank you also to NH Humanities, the Monadnock Food Co-Op, Joseph's coat, and to the many community members who sponsored portraits to help make this exhibit and event possible!
