About the Event
Museum of the Bible welcomes father–son duo Jerome and Jeromyah Jones for a compelling discussion about the Bible’s “I.M.P.A.C.T.” on their collection of paintings entitled, Dissertation On Peace Exhibit. The acronym “I.M.P.A.C.T.” stands for “Illustrating Messiah’s Powerful Anointed Creative Teachings.” During the conversation, the artists will discuss the concept behind the pieces within the larger body of work, as well as the historical, present, and futuristic elements that scripture reveals on the subject of peace.
Museum of the Bible’s Lunch and Learn programs are one-hour conversations held on the last Wednesday of each month with a curator or outside speaker discussing popular and relevant topics.
About the Exhibit
Using their faith as the inspiration for the collection, Dissertation On Peace Exhibit, artists Jerome and Jeromyah Jones have created a series of paintings featuring figurative landscapes that point to the liberating power of prayer, prophecy, and provision through the third Fruit of the Spirit. Dissertation On Peace Exhibit will go on display at Museum of the Bible beginning July 22, 2021, on the Impact of the Bible, Floor 2.

For more than 40 years, Jerome W. Jones Jr. has used his original paintings to teach “The Art of Life Through the Love of Art” to inspire the young and old to use their gifts to uplift others. Jerome’s creative style of portraiture reflects the likeness of his subjects and their stories. Jones’ art company, The Painter’s Poetree, features his original paintings, portraits, "poetree," and prints.
