Muhammad Ali Center
144 N. Sixth St.
In an election season thick with empty promises and carefully manicured rhetoric, here’s a breath of fresh air — “Americans Who Tell the Truth.” That’s the name of a new exhibit at the Muhammad Ali Center that just opened Labor Day weekend. Artist Robert Shetterly’s portraits of 40 Americans pay tribute to a vociferous, courageous bunch who have helped push social, economic and environmental causes. Civil rights activist Anne Braden, as well as Kentuckians Wendell Berry and Muhammad Ali, all are featured in the exhibit. Each portrait includes a quote from the individual. So tune out the political white noise and enjoy genuine truth. —Anne Marshall
