Rob Shetterly Presents Brandeis Portrait

On May 26, Rob Shetterly presented his portrait of Louis D. Brandeis at both Central High School and the law school. This recent addition to the Maine artist’s collection of “Americans Who Tell the Truth” was suggested by Laura Rothstein who became inspired after having attended a reception and display of his collection at the Louisville Visual Art Association last year. The portraits are of Americans whose words and works demonstrate the importance of the First Amendment in American life.

The quote on the portrait reads:

Our government is the potent, the omnipresent teacher.  Crime is contagious.  If government becomes a lawbreaker, it breeds contempt for the law; it invites every man to become a law unto himself; it invites anarchy.
