Art Gallery Display Area (Multipurpose Room)

The gallery rail system, located in the multipurpose room, affords approximately 48′ of exhibit space on three walls. Wall lengths are approximately 30, 6, and 12 ft. For safety and protection of your artwork and patrons, your artwork must be hung using picture hanging wire on the back of the frame.
