ART Project is a monumental project. It is the artistic
calling of California born artist, Jeff LeFever. The 66
Project artworks are visual interpretations the 66 books
of the Canonized Bible, with the intent of being the heart
of a non denominational, non doctrinal sanctuary. Each painting
for each book will contain that books full text in the original
language gilded in 23 Karat gold. The size of each painting
is determined by the amount of scripture contained in each
book - the largest book being Psalms will be 30 feet tall
by about 24 feet wide, and where John 3, will be only a
few square feet.
ART Project ONLINE is a separate entity - it serves
as a document to the making of the Freedom ART Project paintings.
Here you will find sketches and paintings
as they develop as well as a near real time journal of the
artist. This web site is meant to be like a conversation
in the artist's studio, visiting and discussing the Project,
faith, art, ...
ART Project ONLINE is also about:
exhibiting faith by documenting the "faith-walk"
journey of Artist Jeff LeFever and his calling to "Paint
Clouds. Put Them In Crosses."
~ an expanding community
fostering a love for God and His Amazing Grace - no matter
what - even when things do not make sense.
The Freedom ART Project Online is a group
of individuals dedicated to informing the public about the
making and progress of the Freedom ART Project
(Painting Project/ Sanctuary).
~ encouraging the art of
others, dedication to helping others identify their God
given gifts, dedication to growing in faith of God's promises
in the Holy Scriptures, dedication to helping each other
and our audience grow in these ways if they want to participate
The Freedom ART Project itself
is a fire lit by God in the heart of LeFever. A fire that
the artist invites us to gather around like in a camp, or
a hearth, to share our experiences and stories about how
Great God is Truly. This is the genesis for the Freedom
ART Project Online and its record of the Project development.
Freedom ART Project Online is not the Freedom ART Project,
it is an expression born from the Freedom ART Project, and
focuses on faith and learning about Faith, as promised in
Biblical scripture. We are doing something different here
- rather than using the Project as an illustration to support
a point, as you would see in a sermon on Faith - we are
sharing a real time experience. This is not a NOUN - it
is a VERB. This is a living journal of Faith of a Project
occurring in OUR OWN TIME - now, not past tense. This is
what makes it exciting. With that in mind we invite everyone
to warm his or her souls by the fire. Participate. Visit
Often. Contribute your knowledge, your feelings, and your
experiences. Write us. Step into the artist's studio.
Above all, praise our Lord,
for His, is truly the source of all things.
