Huge Art Exhibit in '55 Airstream Shows Dark Side of Eating Meat
For Immediate Release:May 28, 2010

Washington -- PETA will be showcasing a very imaginative art display on the National Mall just in time for the summer tourist season in our nation's capital. The display, which is called "The Diner," was created by Greg Metz, an art teacher at the University of Texas at Dallas. The exhibit was created inside a 28-foot 1955 Airstream diner, and the sides of the diner flip up to reveal a 3-dimensional reimagining of the Last Supper with famous vegetarians--including Sir Paul McCartney, Pamela Anderson, Gandhi, and Jesus--in attendance instead of the apostles of Christ. Some biblical scholars contend that because Jesus was an Essene--a member of a Jewish sect that forbade animal sacrifice and meat-eating--he was likely vegetarian. Passersby--including families visiting the Smithsonian Institution will find lots of food for thought at the exhibit. Tourists can peer into the windows on the opposite side of the trailer to view vivid sculptures depicting scenes of factory-farm cruelty and human gluttony.
"The Diner" will be "open for business" starting tomorrow at the intersection of 14th Street S.W. and Jefferson Drive S.W. The display will be on the National Mall through June 6 from 10 a.m.–4 p.m.
