Robert Shetterly's AWTT project has added three new portraits this week. It began with the virtual unveiling the day after Thanksgiving of F.B.I. whistleblower, Sibel Edmond's portrait in partnership with Common Dreams, where you can read Robert Shetterly's essay, "Meditation on Law and Denial While Painting Sibel Edmonds".
On Wednesday, December 4, the portraits of the Maine-Wabanaki activists, Esther Attean and Denise Altvater, were unveiled in the Hall of Flags in the Maine State Capitol building. This event was organized in partnership with Maine-Wabanaki REACH and the Maine Wabanki-State Child Welfare Truth and Reconciliation Commission. Read about the event in an article by Mario Moretto, published in the Bangor Daily News: Portrait artist Robert Shetterly adds Wabanaki Activists to famed 'Americans Who Tell the Truth' series.
Also this week, AWTT began working with NHREBELLION, an new, non-partisan organization that will follow in the footsteps of Doris 'Granny D' Haddock, and press to make campaign finance reform and political corruption a major issue in the 2016 presidential race. In their words, "How are YOU going to end the corruption in Washington?" Read more about them at their website and enjoy their use of the Shetterly's portrait of Granny D.
