NEW YORK (AP) – A new multimedia installation in Manhattan will offer new ways to see and interpret Leonardo Da Vinci’s “The Last Supper.”

The Park Avenue Armory show reproduces the 15th century painting with a 40-minute sound-and-light show.

The “clone” painting is set within a full-scale replica of the 4,000-square-foot dining hall at Santa Maria Delle Grazie. The convent in Milan houses the original work.

“Leonardo’s Last Supper: A Vision by Peter Greenaway” opens on Thursday.

The work by the Welsh-born filmmaker and multimedia artist fills the armory’s cavernous former drill hall.

The armory’s president, Rebecca Robertson, calls Greenaway’s installation “an incredible multimedia reverie.”

The show ends Jan. 6.
