Friends of the Kirkbride Print Fundraiser

from 15.00

In the 19th century, Dr. Thomas Story Kirkbride devised a plan for a mental hospital that used architecture and setting as a method of healing. Over 70 of these hospitals were built around the country during this time period. They were built with extreme attention to detail and with extraordinary craftsmanship. And they were built to last hundreds of years. Today, these hospitals have either been left abandoned, renovated into something new, or eradicated from the face of the Earth. Fewer than 30 remain standing. Fergus Falls is home to one of the few left, but that may not hold true for long.

These prints of various Kirkbride asylums on the east coast are being sold in an effort to raise funds for the fight to preserve the Fergus Falls Regional Treatment Center, a Kirkbride asylum dating back to 1890 in Fergus Falls, Minnesota. The building's fate has been up in the air for years, but recently the city has made moves to begin the demolition of the historic structure. Demolition equipment could start appearing on the campus within a few weeks. 

100% of any profits from these prints will be donated to Friends of the Kirkbride, an organization dedicated to the preservation and adaptive reuse of the building.

For more information, visit "Friends of the Kirkbride" on Facebook.

Each print is of the highest, professional quality, and hand printed, and signed, by myself. 

To order: Scroll through the photos to the left, and find the photo you would like to purchase. Make note of the number in the top right hand corner of the image. Select the size you would like and follow the instructions on the screen. You will be prompted to enter the Photo Number of the photo you desire. Failure to enter the correct number will result in you getting the wrong print.
