Last Supper Daily Viewings

April 3, 2023 - April 8, 2023


Studio Acting Conservatory announces a week of daily viewings for the public to experience the Last Supper sculpture, by artist Akili Ron Anderson. Created by artist Akili Ron Anderson in the early 1980s as a commission for the New Home Baptist Church, Jesus and his disciples are depicted as African American men, an example of the artist’s mission of placing Black people in the center of an ongoing cultural conversation. Since its discovery in 2019, the massive 20-foot wide Last Supper sculpture has been cleaned, repaired and conserved by the National Museum of African American History and Culture. NMAAHC also created a 3D rendering of the sculpture, which has been accessioned into its permanent collection. Anderson, a tenured art professor at Howard University, is considered part of the Black Arts Movement of the 1970s, and is a member of the AfriCobra Collective. The Last Supper sculpture will be open to the public from 1-4pm daily, during the week of Passover and Easter. A guide will be on hand to provide context and answer questions.
