Does anyone remember this? I think it was in a storefront in a strip center on Camp Bowie...It was a mural of the last supper painted on the wall, but they also had wax figures that were incorporated into it as well. Pretty cool to see somthing like that life-sized. I was probably there in the 70s, but not real sure.
Remember where it was...anyone know what happened to it?

I saw it, but I don't remember where it was, or what became of it.

I remember it in the strip center on Sunset just south of Camp Bowie. Saw it on a vacation bible school field trip in the 1960s. It was moved to the headquarters of the Baptist Radio & TV Commision at Ridgmar Blvd. & I-30. No telling if it's still there or not or if the BR&TVC is, for that matter.

It should be on display to the public now at the Christian Arts Center at 3205 Hamilton, near the Arts District.

It first showed up in the Ridglea Shopping Center in the '50s, then was on display downtown at a location I can't remember. It then moved back to the west side at the offices of the Radio and Television Commission in Ridgmar until 1997.

I remember going Downtown to see it in the late 60's or very early 70's.

Yes, the museum has been up and running for about two years now, according to facility administrator Dr. Ed Malone. Visiting hours are Wednesday thru Saturday 10:00 - 3:00 and the admission is free, donations accepted.

Dr. Malone suggests that if visitors will call him him in advance he will work to show them through the exhibits, including the Last Supper wax sculpture. He is the minister of the neighboring church and his phone number is 817-335-1522.

Sure hope they had preventative maintenance done on their A/C system early this year. Could this be a forum outing?

The facility's web site is http://lastsupperdisplay.org/
