Description: As part of Santa Cruz’s First Friday Art Tour, MAPS will be hosting a Visionary Art Gallery on May 6th. The Art Tour provides a unique opportunity to learn about MAPS’ clinical research, contribute to our organization by purchasing masterpieces from our gallery, and support visionary art, all while enjoying the Santa Cruz night life.

Hosting works by internationally acclaimed visionary artists Martina Hoffmann, A. Andrew Gonzalez, live painting by local artists Sarah Huntley and Khalila Friedman, and works by local artist Ishka Lha. In addition to this amazing line up of artists and masterpieces we will also be featuring a number of highly enjoyable entertainment experiences, including virtuoso cello, beat-boxing, and vocal looping by Cello Joe; live mixing and bass by Homunculous Rex; fire performances by Nocturnal Sunshine, and the gong chamber experience by Danny Goldberg.

Enjoy complimentary drinks and refreshments and (of course) the company of MAPS staff, volunteers, and supporters. This is an excellent time to learn about MAPS and support our research by making donations or purchases from our stock of books, literature, DVDs, clothing, artwork, and other merchandise. All proceeds from the event help fund MAPS’ psychedelic and medical marijuana research and educational projects.
