Dr. Robert Hieronimus, Visiting Artist Lecture
Artist, educator and activist Dr. Robert Hieronimus (also known as Dr. Bob) will present the work he has created since his first artcar and murals at JHU — painted in the late 60′s and early 70′s. Dr. Bob’s talk will begin with an introduction by Rebecca Hoffberger, Founding Director of the American Visionary Museum.
Dr. Bob has been a pioneer in the “New Paradigm” movement since his Artcar was documented at Woodstock in 1969 and distributed world-wide. His occult and symbolic artcars, murals and paintings is inspired by his friend Ziggy Marley and include the 2,700 square foot prophetic “Apocalypse” at the Johns Hopkins University. Rebecca Hoffberger remembers Hieronimus as “a brilliant young muralist impassioned by the vision of the Founding Fathers. He will discuss several projects including a series of paintings entitled “Red States, Inc.” that have been animated by Amy Ford into a billboard style collage.
Dr. Bob’s 25 year retrospective was recently exhibited at the Windup Space in Baltimore City.
