The Restoration of
the Apocalypse Mural
Progress Update August 9, 2015

I originally completed the Apocalypse mural at Johns Hopkins University in February 1969. It was commissioned by Dr. Chester Wickwire, Chaplain of the Johns Hopkins University. A crew of artists and I have been working on restoring this mural since May 2015. It must be completed by August 20, 2015 when the students return. Although we have been making great progress we still have a very long way to go. Click here for the second installment on progress on The Apocalypse Mural refurbishment Summer, 2015.

The Apocalypse Mural Is Being Reborn

This summer, Dr. Bob Hieronimus has been hard at work at Johns Hopkins University restoring his 46 year old mural, "The Apocalypse." Years of abuse from the mural room being used as an office space resulted in numerous holes and cracks from shelving and bulletin boards being drilled directly into the mural. Thanks to a dedicated crew and the assistance of Johns Hopkins Curator of Cultural Properties, the Apocalypse is being reborn. The surfaces have been scraped and washed down and spackled, areas were redrawn and repainting has begun. Originally completed in February 1969 and documented in a Maryland Public Television documentary, "The Apocalypse" tells of the cyclic nature of history and how a corporate oligarchy is today threatening our democratic republic and the planet itself.

The drug war killed Freddie Gray

Zohara Meyerhoff Hieronimus The Baltimore Sun, May 2, 2015.

The tragic deaths of Freddie Gray in Maryland, Michael Brown of Missouri, and Walter Scott in South Carolina are representative of America’s institutionalized violence, grounded in our modern era drug war.

The American drug war began with President Richard Nixon’s 1971 declaration of war, calling drug use “public enemy No.1,” followed two years later by the creation of the Drug Enforcement Agency. It was easier then for law enforcement to both legally and illegally arrest our citizens without fearing for their own lives, because there were fewer guns on the streets. Today there are 250 million to 300 million guns in our community, one for almost every American.

"Death Economy" Goes Global

When Zohara interviewed John Perkins on 9/23/12, she shared with him the terms she coined almost two decades ago for our situation planet wide, the current Death Economy versus the Life Economy we need to create. During that conversation Zoh suggested to John that he run with it as a banner to the world’s people, given his global travels and it’s capacity to summarize our shared reality world wide. Thank You John, for doing just that. Tune in to hear a new interview with John Perkins discussing his new book with Zohara on March 15, 2015 from 8-9 PM Eastern.

Please contact your elected officials today and let them know you support the 2015 Pollinator Protection Act!

The growing and widespread use of toxic neonicotinoid pesticides ("neonics") is a major contributor to the alarming decline of honey bees. This poses a serious threat to our food supply, to wildlife and to human health. We need to pass this bill to label nursery plants treated with toxic, bee-killing pesticides and restrict their consumer use. Many “bee-friendly” garden plants sold at home garden centers have been pre-treated with these bee-killing pesticides—contact your elected officials about this now!

Review of The Hobbit 3: Battle of the Five Armies

by Dr. Bob Hieronimus

Listen to the archive of 21st Century Radio from SUNDAY 12/28/14

Host: Dr. Bob Hieronimus, Ph.D.

GUEST ONE 8:00-8:30 PM Eastern

Sir Richard Taylor

Oscar-winning special effects genius behind the Lord of the Rings, previews the final installment of “The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies”. Plus the Thunderbirds Are Go!

I thought this movie was great! Even though I was left melancholy at the end, this being the final-final installment from this particular team of this particular story. This is why I thought it entirely appropriate for the film to end very sweetly and softly, rather than with a big bang, because for people like me, we are sad this is truly the end of our adventure into Tolkien’s Middle Earth through this particular lens. And what a ride it’s been! Read the whole review online...

Memorial Tribute to Paul H. Trattner, M.F.A., F.R.C. - Third Installment

In honor of my dear friend and co-worker, Paul H.

Elise Kornack and Anna Hieronimus's Take Root Awarded a Michelin Star!

Michelin, the European tire maker that publishes what could be the world's most recognized guide for dining out, unveiled its 2015 list of New York's best restaurants.

Take Root, a twelve seat, contemporary, American restaurant serving a tasting menu in the Carroll Gardens neighborhood of Brooklyn N.Y.C. was awarded one star!

Brooklyn Chef Counter Take Root Is Small And Mighty: Review

Photographer: Dominic Perri/Bloomberg

Restaurant kitchens require a certain amount of manpower to run, so unless you’re popping over to his house, the chef isn’t really the one cooking dinner for you. It’s the chef plus many hands -- cooks who arrive early to wash, peel, and chop, prep all day, and cook through service, staying late to scrub down the kitchen and take stock of the walk in.

There are few exceptions to this rule. You’ll find one in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn, where the married couple Elise Kornack (back of house) and Anna Hieronimus (front of house) have a 12-seat restaurant called Take Root. Kornack, who is 27, has no prep cook, no dishwasher, no intern to pick and wash herbs, no sous chef to put out the fires. The kitchen is hers alone and what comes out of it can be marvelous.

Scientists know what's killing our bees and putting our food supply at risk: An insecticide called "neonics." But one Big Ag giant has actually asked the EPA to let it use up to 4,000% MORE of this deadly toxin! This could cripple our food supply! The EPA is taking public comments on this issue until October 6, and is required to consider them all. I took 30 seconds to submit mine, asking the EPA to suspend this chemical rather than allowing even more -- will you join me? Together, we can make a difference!

Welcome to Dogwood Farm’s 2014 Organic Garden

Our sizeable garden on Dogwood Farm first grew out of a meditation I had in 2008, which showed me the importance of growing more than a back door garden patch, something I had always maintained. Why? Simply to see what it would take to be somewhat more self-sufficient. The answer, of course, as any gardener knows, or farmers who have lived for millennium working the earth know: it takes a lot of labor, determination, dedication, consistency, humility and energy -- not to mention financial resources -- to create a thriving garden.

See Dr. Bob on the History-2 ("H-2") Channel Mid-August on the Season 3 Premiere of "Ten Things You Didn't Know About...The U.S. Flag" with Henry Rollins

Dr. Bob will appear in the premiere episode of the third season of "10 Things You Don't Know About" hosted by Henry Rollins on the H-2 channel August 16th at 10 PM Eastern. This episode is about who designed the American Flag. It was not Betsey Ross! It was Francis Hopkinson, the only artist to sign the Declaration of Independence. The U.S. Flag has been a particular passion of Bob Hieronimus for decades and he has written extensively about its history and symbolism as well as created numerous pieces of art about the flag.

See the "Our Flag As Cosmic Drama" essay here.

See more about the show at History.com

Filming for "10 Things You Don't Know About" took place at the National Archives in Washington, D.C. where Bob was thrilled to see and touch the actual documents and invoices Hopkinson submitted to Congress proving he is the designer of our flag. Read more online...

Graham Nash Interviewed by Dr. Bob Hieronimus

Photo by Stuart Zolotorow

“I enjoy being on 21st Century Radio with my friend, Dr. Bob Hieronimus because we need people who are putting the truth in front of our faces. We need leaders. We need great voices on the radio, and Dr. Bob is one of them.”

All that follows are direct quotes from Graham Nash’s appearance on 21st Century Radio® with Dr. Bob Hieronimus on November 4, 2012 when they reviewed “The Art of Graham Nash” exhibit in NYC.

“Global warming: It is a very touchy subject. There has been an incredible crusade of climate deniers that are ruling the airwaves and leading people to believe that it’s inconclusive science, that it’s all poppycock, that it’s just not true. And I believe those people will be seen in the future as incredible obstacles to waking up to the fact that our climate is changing.

And don’t forget it’s not just Exxon or the oil companies. It’s the Koch Brothers, and the other billionaires that have holdings in making money from the environment in coal and uranium. The oil companies are a large part of the problem, but they are only a part of the problem. The biggest problem is the America public so far, do not believe that the climate is changing. And with the superstorms like Sandy coming, it’s getting mad out there. Anybody with a brain has got to make the connection between carbon dioxide in the atmosphere affecting the actual climate of the entire planet."

The Student Reveals a Few Key Mentors

by Bob Hieronimus, Ph.D.

In April of 1972 I was contacted by the former Secretary General of the United Nations U Thant, who was providing a letter of introduction to me for Buddhist mystic and diplomat U Maung Maung Ji. This led to several momentous encounters for me with my most important mentors, who told me I had been overshadowed by a higher force to execute “The Apocalypse.”

Main room, main wall of “The Apocalypse” mural, extended

I believe the time has now come for me to reveal this story and introduce you to the guides who have been with me since at least 1968 when I realized why I incarnated in this earthly body known as Robert R. Hieronimus.
