Christopher Holt

This NCMA exhibition featured monumental drawings, intimate portraits, and studies by artist Christopher Holt for the Haywood Street Beatitudes fresco completed in September 2019. The fresco is the result of a two-year community project led by Holt with the Rev. Brian Combs, founder of the Haywood Street congregation in Asheville.
The purpose of the Haywood Street fresco is to honor everyday people and emphasize the church’s ministry, which focuses on helping members of the community who live in poverty and often on the margins of society.
