    I would love to see these displayed. I suppose it counts as outsider art and there have been enjoyable exhibitions of this at the Wellcome and at the Bethlem Museum of the Mind/Bethlem Gallery. Of course another example is Madge Gill whose exhibiton at the William Morris Gallery (much of her work belongs to Newham Council) has just come to an end. I do hope it finds a home.
