Ziggy Marley and The Melody Makers Visit Hieronimus Mural in Baltimore

Bob and Zoh Hieronimus met with reggae superstars Ziggy Marley and his brother Stephen Marley, one half of Ziggy Marley and The Melody Makers, on August 16, 1997 in Baltimore. The children of reggae legend, Bob Marley, were in Baltimore on tour with their latest album, Fallen Is Babylon. Before their sound check they stopped at the 67x22 foot mural, “A Little Help From Our Friends”, designed by Bob Hieronimus, which depicts a 20 foot high portrait of their father in the very center.

Located at 3333 Greenmount Ave. on the outside wall of Johns Hopkins University’s Safe and Smart Center, Hieronimus’ mural “A Little Help From Our Friends” is dominated by portraits of varied historical figures who have become heroes and role models for all the world. Other “Friends” looking down on and inspiring the neighborhood include Mahatma Gandhi, Jackie Joyner-Kersee, Liu Gang (Tiananmen Square organizer), Rachel Carson, Bob Marley, Bob Dylan, Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., Harriet Tubman, Bob Levi (Baltimore philanthropist), and Leon Day, HOF ‘95.

AVAM Benefit with "Mountain Girl" Carolyn Garcia

Monday November 8, 2010, 8pm - 10pm

Carolyn shared a wonderful slide show with us covering much of her history: from the first time she went to Ken Keysey's house to the current state of the bus "Further". For over an hour a rapt audience took a journey with Carolyn through her life through the Merry Prankster days through today.

Special guest Roland Griffiths, Ph.D - Lead Investigator of Psilocybin Research at Johns Hopkins. Dr. Griffiths and his co-researchers have published research indicating psilocybin can occasion mystical-type experiences having substantial and sustained personal meaning and spiritual significance.

They are seeking volunteers with a diagnosis of cancer to participate in a scientific study of states of consciousness brought about by psilocybin, and their impact on psychological distress and spirituality. Other studies need volunteers who want to quit smoking or practice meditation facillatated with psilocybin and counseling in a controlled environment. For more information: 410-550-5990 or  E-Mail:

William Donald Schaefer – a Man of Rebirth

A Tribute from Dr. Bob Hieronimus,

William Donald Schaefer was all about rebirth. And I don’t mean just what he famously did for the renaissance of the City of Baltimore. He had a deeply spiritual and almost mystical side to him that few would ever see. His vision for the future was as distant as his appreciation for the far distant past, and his underlying goals and motivations were towards a future of “one people, one planet.”

As a local artist, I was one of many who first noticed William Donald Schaefer when he was on the City Council and the sponsor of the “1-per-cent-for-art” clause in municipal building contracts. Politicians in support of the arts is such a rare thing that to make such a grand statement of city-wide support certainly attracted to him many new fans among us free-thinking artists.

Gloria Steinem and Dr. Zohara Hieronimus

Dec. 4, 2011


At a gathering hosted by Gloria Stienem in her home, for the benefit of the Matilda Joslyn Gage (1826-1898) Museum in upstate New York. The Gage Museum honors and celebrates the great suffragist’s leadership in equal rights for all humans, for the right to vote of women, African Americans and native Indians, for activities as an abolitionist as well as leading the movement of the separation of Church and State; believing in the sanctity of the sovereign human. These themes of sovereign freedom are the epicenter of Zoh’s long broadcast and writing history.
