The Last Supper. An Unusual Series of Ceramic Plates by Julie Green.
The Last Supper is an ongoing project by Julie Green. The series illustrates the meal requests of U.S. death row inmates. It all started in the late 1990s, when a newspaper story caught the artist’s attention. The article was about a death row inmate and it included details about his final meal. You can visit Julie Green’s Website to learn more details about her project.
