Really expensive at Barnes and Noble, but whatever, there are some mindblowing artwork and writings in this book.

I'm still looking for a book or something that contains his "Nature of Mind" series/panels. If you ask me that's his best work, though he certainly has a lot of other top-notch works.

I would have to say its up indefinetly. Its a building down on 27th street if I remember correctly. Its a rather small place, in a rather run down building. The exhibit is a few floors up, in a nicely finished part of the building.
I took a trip to the city a couple of weeks ago, its def. worth a look if you enjoy his art. Only 5 bucks to get in to.

I'm going to go there tripping sometime soon...I live in the city, I have for all my life, and I've never been there.

Grey's book The Mission of Art is excellent.

Acid doesn't give you truths; it builds machines that push the envelope of perception. Whatever revelations came to me then have dissolved like skywriting. All I really know is that those few years saddled me with a faith in the redemptive potential of the imagination which, however flat, stale and unprofitable the world seems to me now, I cannot for the life of me shake.

Far out man...you'll definitely have to write up a trip report for that one!

The Encyclopedia of Psychoactive Plants: Ethnopharmacology and Its Applications

That's the most expensive book that I've ever bough, but it sure is a nice thing to have around.
