Americans Who Tell The Truth travelling exhibit to include 9/11 Truth faces

Americans Who Tell the Truth is a non-partisan series of portraits of past and current Americans which form a travelling exhibit(s) that is hosted by schools, universities, churches, and various community groups around the country. Cynthia McKinney is included as one of the portraits, and Richard Gage, Steven Jones, and David Ray Griffin are on the list of future possibilities. Check out my email exchange with artist Robert Shetterly:

My Message:

I don't know if you are planning to add more portraits to the Americans Who Tell The Truth collection, but if you are, please allow me to make a recommendation. Given that you began painting this series of portraits as a way to channel your anger and grief in the wake of the September 11th attacks, I would like to recommend a person who is attempting to tell the truth about what happened that day, Mr. Richard Gage. Gage is a member of the American Institute of Architects and founder of Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth ( Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth is an organization which has a membership of over 200 architectural and engineering professionals who have questioned the truthfulness of the official 9/11 story and who are demanding of Congress a truly independent investigation into the 9/11 attacks. Richard Gage represents someone who is seeking the ultimate truth, a truth which is challenging the greatest lie of our generation but which has not yet reached mainstream consciousness. Mr. Shetterly, will you consider a portrait of Richard Gage? Thank you for your time.


Thank you very much for writing.I am still painting portraits.
Right now I'm working on several activists from West Virginia who are trying to stop mountaintop removal there. It's covered up a fashion similar to 9/11.
I know that I'm missing a 9/11 truth teller. Although I did just paint Cynthia McKinney.
I was thinking of Steven Jones. Do you think Richard Gage is better? Or David Ray Griffin?
In a way it doesn't matter --- as long as I put the message out from a credible person.
I really appreciate you interest & help.


Steven Jones. Do you think Richard Gage is better? Or David Ray Griffin?



Has he painted William Rodriguez?

Perhaps we should wait for William Rodriguez ?

Bonjour ,

Here in France we were honoured by the William Rodriquez's visit see
For years I have known and read aout him on the net and that special day.

Howerver on my reseach I did not find articles about his medal given by George Bush etc. I think it is a good idea to paint William but we must be sure by other sources than the his story stands up strongly. If ever his story can be put in doubt by facts by the neocons then the trouth movement will take a blow.

If my history memory is correct there was a guy, with the JFK assassination case, put up by the CIA? , to pretend to have been a top scene witness on that day but when it came to court hearings the court showed that the witness was not even in Dallas. The false testimony discredited the truth movement and helped close further JFK conspiracy enquiries.

David Ray Griffin + Steven Jones + Richard Gage are good choices to be painted.

Yours John

Good work Metallus

That's awesome how Robert was already thinking of adding either Jones or Griffin.

Yes, Shetterly knows the

Yes, Shetterly knows the score. His first 50 portraits comprise an award-winning "young adult" book by Dutton. Having 9/11 truth-tellers among them would be a significant cultural step. I emailed him in September. From his email to me:

"I'm going to be on a radio program tonight with Carol Brouillet whose work is all about the truth of 9/11. I think we have to break the silence about it. Many who know a lot are afraid of being marginalized as nut cases.
David Ray Griffin is on my list of potential portraits."

I agree Gage and Jones are equally worthy of inclusion.
