Trailer+Jesus+Veganism = Masterpiece
Tourists in Washington, D.C., are getting some food for thought courtesy of PETA's art installation on the National Mall. The Diner, by political artist Greg Metz, is housed inside a 28-foot 1955 Airstream trailer. One side of this clever piece shows a re-creation of the Last Supper—with famous vegetarians throughout history, including Sir Paul McCartney, Pamela Anderson, George Bernard Shaw, and Gandhi, replacing the apostles—and the other side shows graphic images of factory farms and slaughterhouses. Imbedded in the Airstream is a TV screen that plays PETA's video "Meet Your Meat."
