The Faher Bill Movie: THE BOY WHO FOUND GOLD - One Night Only!

The Faher Bill Movie: THE BOY WHO FOUND GOLD - One Night Only!
June 2, 2017 7:30 PM
Location: Taos Community Auditorium

 

One-night-only screening of this film about Ranchos de Taos' beloved Father Bill, followed by a Q&A with Father Bill and Filmmaker Christopher Summa.

William Hart McNichols is a world renowned artist, heralded by Time magazine as "among the most famous creators of Christian iconic images in the world."

As a young Catholic priest from 1983-1990 he was immersed in a life-altering journey working as a chaplain at St. Vincent's AIDS hospice in New York city. It was during this time that he became an early pioneer for LGBT rights within the Catholic church. He would speak out in the national news as well as work closely with the founding members of DIGNITY/USA. In 1990 he was called out of the city and into the desert of New Mexico where he began a six year apprenticeship to master the ancient art of painting icons.

For the past 25 years he has received non-stop commissions for his work and has never signed his name to a single icon. All of his works hang anonymously in churches and colleges around the world, including the Vatican Museum.

Born into the most powerful political family in the history of Colorado, McNichols colorful life has crossed paths with both presidents and popes, peace activists and martyrs. His imagery possesses a sensuality that is both beautiful and provocative and his subjects include individuals from all different faiths, Catholic, Muslim, Protestant, and Jewish. His message as a priest, artist and man speaks to the most powerful element of the human spirit: Mercy.

Runtime is 1hr 48mins, not including Q&A afterwards with Father Bill and Filmmaker Christopher Summa.

Tickets are $12 general admission, $10 for TCA members and $5 for youth 17 and under and may be purchased at the TCA office behind Caffe Renato either in person or by phone Monday through Friday, 9am to 5pm, (575)758-2052.

These events are planned for TCA’s various venues: the auditorium, Encore Gallery, and Stables Gallery. Most events, but not all, are sponsored by TCA. Submit your TCA event here.
