Deana Sherman tries to get white grease paint into every nook and cranny on the face of Ryan Hjelmstad as they turn him into a living sculpture. It takes about 30 minutes to get the grease pant on and about 2-3 times longer to wash it off. The 23rd annual Gallery of Living Art was held this weekend at First Lutheran Church. Famous artworks chronicling the life of Jesus are represented by live actors on the stage during the performances. Hjelmstad was playing the part of Jesus from the famous The Pieta, a sculpture by Michaelangelo.  Photo by Jerilee Bennett, The Gazette
