The Haywood Street Fresco tells the story of the Haywood Street congregation, nicknamed affectionately “Holy Chaos,” from its beginnings as just an idea, to a community creating relationships across societal divisions.
Unlike historic frescos that depict wealthy patrons or powerful political figures, the 31 portraits on this fresco were taken from the Haywood Street community. Many who have suffered from poverty, homelessness, addiction, mental illness, or other afflictions that left them on the margins of society make up this community and ministry. These individuals represent those generally overseen or shunned by society, and their bold display in this work of art is a declaration meant to change our perception.
