All Adult and Young Adult work must be framed and ready to hang with hanging wire and secure eye hooks (see below for more details). Sawtooth/Zigzag hanging bar and clips are not compatible with our hanging system.
Children’s works must be framed or adhered to foam core board, and have either secure eye hooks or an adhesive tab with an attached wire for hanging.
Making Sure your Artwork is Ready for Hanging
- For the safety of your
work, and the work around it,
all works should be framed and
ready to hang with secure eye
hooks and a hanging wire.
Unframed canvases are
acceptable as long as they
have a hanging wire as we
utilize a hanging system, not
nails, to display the artwork.
- The PCA’s hanging system
compatible with frames with a
claw tooth (sawtooth, zigzag)
hanging bar (which are
designed to work with nails).
Again, a hanging wire
must be attached.
- Children’s works that are
not framed must be adhered to
foam core board and mounted
with a securely attached
adhesive tab and hanging wire
on the back. Using a hot glue
gun to secure the wire is one
of the few methods that work.
Tape of any kind (Duct,
Masking, Scotch, etc.) is not
acceptable as the wire will
slip through the tape.
