Mike Inglis - Street Shrines

Specially commissioned new works by Mike Inglis. One of Scotland’s leading public/street artists. Mike has been researching ‘outsiders’ and ‘custodians’ in Dumfries since May 2012. He has worked with community groups and historical information ranging from the execution of nine women accused of witchcraft in 1659 to the groundbreaking theraputic community at the former Crichton Hospital.  

Mike's work around Dumfries will include two 'window shrines' and six 'paste-upstreet shrines' - these will begin to appear in the town centre on November 4th and will be visible for as long as the good folk of Dumfropolis choose to leave them unmolested.
