Ways to Hang Three Dimensional Art
by Erin Keane, RAC Intern
I’ve been inspired by the way that Kate Wadkins has displayed the Brainwaves collection at RAC. Lots of three dimensional art is really beautiful and interesting, but you have to get creative with ways to display it. So I looked around RAC and thought about ways that I would display our three dimensional pieces in my home.
First and foremost of course is the Brainwaves display on our gallery wall. If you are anything like our intern Madeline Dahl, you love zines and have more than you know what to do with. Simply letting beautiful art pieces sit on a bookshelf, only viewed when someone picks them up, doesn’t do justice to even the smallest of collections. By taking some rough textured yarn or twine and tying it to nails on the wall you can create the perfect display for zines, magazines, or even light handmade books.
“Working with POC Zine Project has helped me better understand coalition-building between people of color-led movements and white allies. The depth of knowledge, experience, and partnership that Daniela and POCZP have brought into my own life is immeasurable. Thank you for all that you have done, and all that you continue to do! - Kate Wadkins”—
They are changing the ways we write, tell, and make history—from zines, to the academy, to the culture at large.
Read the full post here and stay tuned for more orgs and individuals she’ll be highlighting through the end of 2012.
Thanks for the <3, Kate!
