I was recently invited by photographer Cat Palmer to be a part of her latest art project, a re-creation of The Last Supper. The photo was staged to include the 12 people that, in Palmer’s eyes, exemplify what makes Salt Lake City great. I was honored and flattered to be among them.
(Cat Palmer | copyright Cat Palmer Photography) Photographer Cat Palmer re-created Leonardo da Vinci’s The Last Supper on Sunday, Sept. 13, 2015, casting a dozen Salt Lake City “bad-asses” in the roles around Greg Shearer (center) as Jesus. The participants are (from left to right): radio host Paul Duane, TV anchor Mary Nickles, filmmaker Richard Dutcher, make-up/hair stylist Paula J. Dahlberg, editorial cartoonist Pat Bagley, actor/writer Charles Lynn Frost (in his persona of Sister Dottie S. Dixon), singer/musician Ransom Wydner, public-radio host Doug Fabrizio, actress/TV personality Deena Marie Manzanares, Utah state Sen. Jim Dabakis, radio host Bill Allred, and comedian Jay Whittaker.
