Dine with Jesus.

Dine With Jesus

Field review by the editors.

Brighton, Michigan

Interactivity, Last Supper-style. A life-lize bronze Jesus sits at an outdoor, 11-foot-long granite table surrounded by 12 empty seats. Titled "Dine With Jesus," it was installed in 2012 in a tree-shaded grotto overlooking the cemetery of the Holy Spirit Roman Catholic Church, which hopes that people will in fact eat their lunches there, or just hang out and imagine themselves in place of the apostles. You could gather together 11 friends and recreate Leonardo da Vinci's famous painting! The sculpture was built by Canadian artist Timothy Schmalz.
