Pictures on the Wall

New Milford, Connecticut

Earlier this afternoon, Bob the Facilities Guy installing a set of my prints in the hallway of a newly built MRI section at a local hospital.

Everyone needs Bob the Facilities Guy, he is the real reason things click.

I'm really interested in the mechanics here and I'll take a flier on the hanging setup: foamcore backer, print, and plex or acrylic cover. Some kind of clippy rig to hold it together and provide the hanger. Are they 16" x 20". Also is this a permanent display?

Dennis, you are very close. Archival foam core, print, conservation (UV protect) glass, held together with "Swiss Clips." The installation had to be done on crash deadline for an upcoming reception and there was no time to order frames. The clips will later be replaced by narrow window-box style frames for the permanent installation.

The pictures are app. 13.5x20.5 inches printed on 17x24, self-matting.

Carl, I really appreciate you taking the time to answer these questions. Thanks!
