Unique methods of display are welcome. Please provide written instructions, photos, or diagrams for display attached to the piece.

All 2D work must have the top clearly marked. The frame or mount for a piece should have stable hardware for hanging or margins so the work may be displayed with exhibition pins or magnets.
