Americans Who Tell the Truth

A group of local residents is bringing Robert Shetterly’s inspiring project,  Americans Who Tell the Truth, Models of Courageous Citizenship, to Ipswich in July 2019.  The work is a collection of painted portraits and narratives that highlight the numerous contributions of ordinary and well-known citizens alike, who have affected change in the social, economic and environmental landscape of America over the past 200 years.

The Ipswich exhibit will present a non-partisan representative sample of 25 to 30 portraits selected by community groups and sponsors.
The portraits will be displayed at three locations in Ipswich, including Zumi’s
Espresso, the Ipswich Museum and True North Ale Brewery, throughout the month of
July 2019.
