Jeffery Jerome The Memorial Pig Car birthed from the brain of Rev. Bryan Taylor. Jeffery Jerome was a pig owned by Victoria Herberta, at her house, inside the City of Houston. Jeffery Jerome was a full size pig. In 1992, Jeffery Jerome was exiled from the Houston City Limits and sent to live out the rest of his life in San Marcos TX, away from his owner. On Memorial Day, 1994, Jeffery Jerome died when he, and the tree he was standing under for shelter during a rainstorm, was struck by lightening. No pork rind jokes please - we didn't find them funny back then either. When Bryan heard of the demise of Jeffery Jerome, he decided to make a memorial art car in his honor. Bryan and I put this car together with the help of many people. We painted under the carport of our Montrose townhouse and drove to other artists to help with the attachment of ears, snout and tail. Here is a list of artists that helped work on this car: Bryan Taylor - paint Nicole Strine - paint Shelley Buschur - paint JoLyn Potocki - paint Tom Kennedy - ears and snout Noah Edmundsen - tail Here are a few pictures from the Memorial Service held at Pigdom, Victoria Herberta's home. The media were out in full - must have been a slow news day. Many art cars were there and a few sported snouts in Jeffery Jerome's honor.
