Student, Professor Create Painting of the Last Supper

A William Woods University art student and his professor have created a painting of the Last Supper for the Free Methodist Church in Portland, Mo.

Loyd M. Heaton III of Chillicothe, with the help of Professor Terry Martin, based their painting on the famous one by Leonardo da Vinci. They incorporated the faces of various WWU faculty, staff and students to create the images of Jesus and his Disciples.

The painting will be on display in the Corridor Gallery of the Gladys Woods Kemper Center for Art on the WWU campus Thursday and Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. before being transported to the Portland church. Admission is free and open to the public. For more information, call (573) 592-4245.
