Featured Event: Fannin’ the Heat Away: A Celebration of the Art and Social History of the Handheld Church Fan

Event Dates and Times

1/22/2018
Farmville Public Library, 4276 West Church Street, Farmville, NC
In a program of old-fashioned show-and-tell, William McNeill celebrates a vanishing relic of southern Americana: the handheld church fan. While showing his large collection of vintage church fans, he explores their place in Protestant Christian art and reveals how the fans have served as devotional icons. He also illustrates the important role church fans have played in the world of advertising and in the kitsch visual culture of the American South. The fans trigger brief anecdotes that capture the flavor of the 1950s congregation of Singletary Methodist Church, the country church of his Bladen County youth. Offering fragments of a vanished world, this informative and entertaining program resurrects a time gone by – a warmer and more innocent time before the cooling breezes of air conditioning.

William McNeill (M.A., Appalachian State University) is a musician who enjoys playing piano recitals of his favorite theatre and film composers. A tango aficionado, he has given concerts of classic tangos and performed as a pianist/accompanist with the Alban Elved Dance Company. McNeill is a collector of Southern Americana, a recorder of oral and social history, an avid reader, world traveler, theatre buff, and environmentalist who advocates the preservation of old trees. An assemblage and performance artist, his exhibit “My Life as a Handheld Church Fan: A Rhapsody on Sweat, Sweet Tea, and Salvation” was showcased in 2011 at the Cameron Art museum in Wilmington, NC. McNeill, a relative of Anna McNeill Whistler, is listed as a source in the book Whistler’s Mother: An American Icon, published in conjunction with the International Whistler Exhibit in Glasgow, Scotland, which McNeill attended in 2003.

This project is made possible by a grant from the North Carolina Humanities Council, a statewide nonprofit and affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
