The primary objectives and purposes of the COMMITTEE TO PRESERVE THE JESS MURALS AND KAEL/BASART HOUSE are to preserve the Kael Basart House in Berkeley, California, which contains murals painted by renowned Bay Area artist Jess, and its history. We wish to allow the House to be accessible to historians, scholars, writers, poets, film makers, artists, musicians and others in the arts community. We seek to facilitate the conservation and restoration of the Jess murals and other artist-created elements of the House and develop the House to become a center for educational and cultural activities through programming and partnerships. This Committee along with the Jess Trust are seeking how this house and these murals can be preserved for future generations. Toward this end, we hope that the house will be bought by an individual or family aware of its history and who will appreciate and preserve Jess’s artworks. Alternatively, we hope that the house might be purchased by an institution or by art collectors and/or investors who would own it jointly as a non-profit foundation, maintaining it as a small museum and study center honoring Robert Duncan and Jess, and Pauline Kael. www.kaelbasarthouse.org/
