I am so sorry that we didn’t get any pictures of us putting the walls together but they were actually very simple to put together and get up. First we laid down our white foam flooring to protect the canvases from the nasty NSS floor. Then we laid the canvases on the floor just how they should be once put up. Since the frame of the canvases is wood, we simply used small pieces of wood to connect them. We used a drill to connect the smaller wood to the back of the canvases so that all of the canvases on one wall were connected in a sturdy way. We had pre-drilled holes in the back of the wood on each canvas to slip zip ties into. This is how we connected the walls to the metal pipe that is provided. It isn’t ever as easy as it should be and there are always issues.
That is the most important thing that I have learned over my years exhibiting at NSS: No matter how well you plan and prepare, something will go “wrong” and you will have to come up with a solution on the spot. You can only hope that they are minimal.
|Here I am putting together the display which I just had a general idea of in my head, no real plan. So I just started putting stuff on the wall with no plan. And it didn’t turn out so hot.|
