I've always been in awe of Julie, and now I'm really glad she's been noticed in a big way for her ongoing work "The Last Supper," depicting the final dinner requests of death row inmates.
No matter what your view of the death penalty, this show packs a very visceral punch.
The prisoner's last meal is personal information made public after the execution.
It's like a little window into who that person was.
Some requests are big and expensive.
Others not so much.
And some not at all.
States that have the death penalty are well-represented.
So if you have any ideas about a venue that could house this collection, speak up.
