We went to a ramp festival in West Virginia yesterday and I'll post pics once I've sorted through all of them. After we left the festival, we headed west to tour the Trans Atlantic Lunatic Asylum in Weston, WV. This building is the second largest sandstone building in the world; the Kremlin being the largest.
I have a lot to post about this place but today I will start with the art gallery.
Click any pic to enlarge. If you still can't read something because it's too small, hold down your command key and click on the + key to make it bigger.
All of the art work was left behind by patients.
This hospital closed in 1994 which is rather startling.
This is some pretty amazing stuff. The pain these patients were in is quite obvious in some of these pieces.
So, take your time and peruse these if you are interested and tomorrow I will post more of the hospital and the practices within.
