Entheon means a place to discover the Creator within.
Entheon, Sanctuary of Visionary Art at CoSM, transforms a three-story carriage house into a stunning 12,000 square foot exhibition of the finest original works of Visionary Art, precious paintings, drawings, sculpture and moving image, that resonates with the highest states of consciousness. Inside Entheon, the Chapel of Sacred Mirrors features a cathedral-esque latticework ceiling, ten archangels, and a quartz crystal moat that surrounds each of the twenty-one Sacred Mirrors.

Chapel of Sacred Mirrors
Entering Chapel of Sacred Mirrors, we stand inside a gothic brick archway and become a living Sacred Mirror. This series of nineteen highly detailed paintings and two etched mirrors, are presented in frames sculpted with the history of humanity and the universe. Viewers are invited to reflect on a vision of the physical body transforming into pure infinite love energy.
Still in construction is the sculptural “countenance” of Entheon, the thirty faces, the corner angels, roof dragons, evolutionary murals, secret writing… all pointing to the Transcendental Unity of Spirit. The monumental sculptures will be realized with the help of experts in ornamental concrete, utilizing advanced technologies of 3D modeling and fabrication. By sharing the psychedelic and mystical experience through visionary art, an observatory is provided for the beyond within. The Soul is restored by beholding transcendent beauty.
To all who have helped make this historic sacred work of co-creation an ongoing success, we join with a growing community in thanking you with all our hearts.
