Website for The Committee to Preserve the Jess Murals & Kael-Basart House, a Berkeley non-profit. The mission is to preserve a 1905 Arts and Crafts two story brown shingle home, which was once owned by the renowned film critic, Pauline Kael. In 1956, Kael asked the painter, Jess, to paint a series of murals in the upstairs rooms and hallway, which turned out to be his most jewel-like and ambitious mural project. The committee worked to preserve the murals.
