The Jerome Project

Description

The Jerome Project is a multi-platform art history project to preserve, protect and further the artistic legacy of the late Jerome Caja (1958-1995). The goal is to bring greater visibility and accessibility to Jerome's paintings and performances. Here you will find descriptions of the seven main projects: (1) feature-length documentary film, (2) digital catalogue raisonné, (3) revival art shows, (4) biographical timeline, (5) large-format fine art book, (6) historical preservation and (7) non-profit foundation dedicated to Jerome's art. The film Jerome and the Art of Sainthood is the driving force for all these projects. It is an unconventional, art-driven feature documentary that explores the cultural relevance of Jerome Caja's art and places him where he belongs in contemporary art history as a master American painter.
