The Jerome Gonzalez Mural Project

Help create a mural in memory of, and tribute to, Jerome Luis Gonzales.

The New Jersey art  community, friends and family recently lost someone very near and dear to us: JEROME  LUIS  GONZALEZ.  He passed away unexpectedly on 2/17/2018. He was a beloved father of 2 young children, a son, a brother, a friend, a painter, a published author, an athlete, an advocate for the arts, a mentor, and a community leader.  A TRUE modern-day Renaissance man.

In his memory, Arts On Division,  a non-profit, 501 (c) (3) corporation in Somerville, is  organizing a mural in tribute to Jerome. We are grateful to the Borough of Somerville for their support and encouragement with this project, which recognizes Jerome's positive impact on the community and how much he is missed.  We would also like to give a huge THANK YOU to  Dimitrios "Jimmy" Stathatos, the owner of The PHOENIX CAFE, for graciously allowing us to put the mural on the side of his building. 

To execute this project, we are seeking $6,000 to cover the costs of the paint, materials and the insurance. The size of the mural is approximately 90 feet  x  18 feet.  We are looking to do this project in the coming months and we will announce a start date when we can.  The artists who are involved in doing the actual painting are donating their time and skills:  Adrian Collazo (Jerome's cousin), Alex  Medina and Leon Rainbow, who have worked with Jerome on art projects in the past. 

Any funds exceeding this goal amount will go towards Jerome's children's education.
