Shortly after 9/11, Maine artist Robert Shetterly was looking for a way to rally fellow citizens against an unjust war. He undertook a campaign to do what he knew best – paint -- and created a project called Americans Who Tell the Truth. Nearly 20 years and 265 portraits later, the project has become widely shown, depicting great Americans past and present.
