Lisa's Project

A local artist had made beautiful strips of home-made paper bearing the signatures of various people. She needed a way to attach these pieces to a gallery wall so that the fasteners would not be seen. We worked together and developed the following system: The artist made paper loops on the back of each piece. I took three strips of museum board. I cut two holes in one of them. I put small magnets in the strips with the holes and used the other strips to form a sandwich so that the magnets were held in place. We placed these 6-inch-long paper sandwiches through the loops on the back of each signature piece. I attached small steel strips to the walls at the desired locations. Then it was a simple matter to place each signature strip over the appropriate steel strip so that it was held in place with no hint of visible fasteners.
