Art Church: Sacramental Culture with hosts Alex Grey & Allyson Grey
Sunday, January 19th, 2014 – 1pm – 7pm
$10 admission, free for CoSM Members
The human urge to achieve altered states of consciousness through the ingestion of sacramental, mind-expanding substances is as old as history itself,
from the cradles of Eastern and Western civilizations to contemporary trance and neo-shamanic subcultures. Through plant medicines and chemical epiphanies,
the drive to risk hell to experience heaven has been unfolding into a modern day spiritual movement.
In this presentation, one of the most beloved, inspiring and accomplished American visionary artists of our era, Alex Grey, will trace these generations of God seekers,
offering us extraordinary visual illustrations of their inner journeys, including glimpses of his own art and of other exponents of this emerging visionary culture.
Bring your own art supplies for the most enjoyment.
A sketch book and colored pencils, pens or a watercolor set is plenty.
Paper and markers are available.
Rooms are available for rent in Grey House, CoSM’s fully renovated Visionary Victorian guest house.
The artwork of Alex Grey & Allyson Grey plus many other visionary artists are on display in the guest house.
