Good Friday on 4/19. I painted Purple Jesus back in 1987 and unbeknownst to me it became the background for a blotter popular at Grateful Dead concerts. Tim Leary signed some also unbeknownst to me but later I got to meet him at one of my art exhibits. Dr. Leary was the student advisor for Walter Pahnke at Harvard in 1962. The Good Friday experiment was when Pahnke conducted the first Mystical Experience study using psilocybin. This breakthrough study led to many similar studies at Johns Hopkins University and NYU that are helping people recover from PTSD, addiction and depression with psychedelic therapies. Come to CoSM tonight and meet Dr. Anthony Bossis of the NYU Psilocybin studies.
