Preparing for Exhibit

Posted Jan 3, 2013Tagged

When planning how the exhibit will hang, modular pieces have the advantage of being flexible for any space. But the challenge is how to show the other configurations when the pieces themselves can’t be moved? For my first exhibit, I used a velcro board with foam core miniatures so people could play with the different views. But I wanted something more polished looking.

Solution: Magnets!
Robert Mullins, a very talented metal sculptor, created light-weight metal clips that hold the modular pieces together from the backs without nails, using screws and tension, which is a great solution to allow flexibility. So I approached him to see how to make a magnet display, and Robert had a fabulous (and inexpensive solution! I just ordered the panels, and found a good source for inkjet magnet sheets, will post soon if they print well. Check out Robert Mullin’s work on his website.
