The Arts Center in Corvallis presents a solo exhibition by Julie Green, a Professor of Painting at Oregon State University, nationally renowned artist and a recipient of the Joan Mitchell Painter and Sculptors Award.

Green has created an important body of work within her oeuvre: The Last Supper. 500 final meals of U.S death row inmates. This ongoing installation project currently consists of 500 plates depicting the last meal requests from death row inmates. Green started the series in the early 2000’s and intends to paint 50 plates annually until the death penalty is abolished.
