Haywood Street Congregation (297 Haywood Street, West AVL) + Zoom
Presented as part of the Faith in Arts Institute

At the intersection of poverty and portraiture, Theirs is the Kingdom follows the rare creation of a contemporary fresco mural inside the sanctuary of a small church in Asheville, NC. This is a painting not of the rich and powerful, but of people battling homelessness, addiction, and mental illness. From first sketch to final unveiling, the viewer witnesses the difficulties of this ancient artistic technique while also meeting an ensemble cast of complex characters.

This presentation is free with limited tickets available due to space and COVID safety restrictions.
