Trivia
The college's name, "Strathmore", is actually a company that manufactures things like sketch pads and tracing paper for artists. Most of the students throughout the movie use products from this brand.

The art college in the movie is based on the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn. According the published screenplay, the minimalist paintings Jonah brings to class were painted by author Daniel Clowes when he was a student at the Pratt Institute.

Goofs
When Jerome visits Professor Sandiford, Sandiford is smoking a cigarette that disappears and reappears between shots.
Share this
When Jerome's roommate, the fashion designer, is sewing on his machine, it wasn't threaded correctly. The spool was on the bobbin loader, not the spool pin where it should be.
Share this
When Jerome is the bartender at the party, he twists the top off of the beer and gives it to Jonah. Hoegaarden does not come in twist off bottles.

Quotes
Eno: It has the singularity of outsider art,though the conscious rejection of spatial dynamics could only come from an intimacy with the conventions of picture-making.

Marvin Bushmiller: Shut up. Look. There's really only one question any of you want to ask: you want to know what it would take to turn you into me. Well, listen closely, 'cause I'm gonna give you the answer. In order to be a great artist, you simply have to *be* a great artist. There's nothing to learn. So... you're all wasting your time. Go home.

Bardo: The only trouble with that is: all those beatnik chicks are totally insane. Look. What you really want is a nice, innocent, suburban girl. Some freshman chick who hasn't been corrupted yet.
