The mission of Art by Alex Grey

From:  http://Cosm.org

The mission of Art is to make the Soul perceptible.  Woven through the
40,000 year record of world art  is the evolution of human conscious-ness. 
The iconography of Art history shows the unfolding creative spirit.  Great works
of sacred art in every age and culture have depicted wisdom masters, leaders, and
heros in order to represent the pinnacle of evolved consciousness at the time. 
Contemplating those icons can catalyze an evolutionary shift of consciousness
in the viewer.  In the Orthodox Christian tradition, this is known as theosis,
coming closer to God by contemplation of icons.

Art has a function and a mission to interpret the world, to reveal the condition
of the soul, to encourage our higher nature and awaken the spiritual faculties
within every individual.


"Art can be a form of worship and service. The incandescent core of an artist's soul,
a glowing God's eye, infinitely aware of the beauty of creation, is interlocked with a
network of souls, each one a facet of the Vision Crystal, part of one vast group soul.
The group soul of art beyond time comes into time by projecting symbols through
the artists imagination. God's radiant grace fills the heart and mind with these
gifts of Vision. The artist honors the vision gifts by weaving them into works
of art and sharing them with the community. The community uses them as
wings to soar to the same shining vistas and beyond. "
