With Alex Grey & Allyson Grey
“Entheon means a place to discover the Creator within.”
— Alex Grey
CoSM needs your help to raise $400,000 to complete all that is required to open the interior exhibition of Entheon.
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.
The exhibition inside will open before the building is wrapped in sculpture.

All One Gallery
The Entheon Portal will feature bronze sculptural doors, a work of art entitled Creating a Better World, by Alex Grey. Artists, Adam & Eve, return to the Garden to paint a new world and harvest the Tree of Wisdom.
Through the inspiring bronze and glass doors of the Portal, you enter the All One Gallery, exhibiting original artwork by leading masters of the International Visionary Art Movement.
Inside the entrance, the World Prayer Wheel, by Alex Grey, may be turned by every visitor, each revolution symbolizing the repetition of the prayers inscribed, “May the Elements Be Purified.” “May Peace Prevail on Earth.” “May All Being Be Liberated.” “Sustain the Web of Life.”
The Entheon Museum Shop will offer affordable originals, limited editions, Visionary books and posters, and an attractive and eclectic selection of artistic gifts and fine altar objects.
The Psychedelic Reliquary will host treasured artifacts and ephemera, including the spectacles of Dr. Albert Hofmann and the ashes of Timothy Leary. A shrine inside the Reliquary Room will be dedicated to Alex’s artistic collaboration with Grammy Award winning band, Tool.
Chaos, Order, Secret Writing
A multi-media installation of the Chaos, Order, Secret Writing world of Allyson Grey will include devotionally labor intensive drawings and paintings, her mystic abstractions point to the fabric of spectral light, a system at the foundations of consciousness.
Progress of the Soul
An unfolding narrative appears in the the Progress of the Soul Gallery, featuring Alex Grey’s original masterpieces, Kissing, Copulating, Pregnancy, Birth, Nursing, among others.
One of Alex’s most beloved monumental paintings, Gaia, a twelve by eight foot masterwork, will be on view. Painted in 1989, this visually prophetic work articulates the plight of our environment while also revealing two airplanes headed toward the Twin Towers.
The Performance exhibit will host documentation, relics and rarely seen early footage of the Grey’s provocative performance art rituals that led to the creation of CoSM and Entheon.
