Synopsis: Gallery and museum staff are aware that exhibitions can be materially diminished by the failure to acknowledge that there is an art to displaying art. The Art of Displaying Art takes the mystery out of successful exhibition design. It is an essential guide for gallery and museum personnel. Private collectors who own oils, graphics, drawings, and photographs will find this volume a valuable handbook for hanging art in their homes and offices. Professor Lawrence B. Smith, the author, taught display and exhibit design at the Fashion Institute of Technology, one of the few institutions of higher learning with a program in gallery and museum management. His book covers arranging the wall - using a model of the space - conservation concerns - handling the work - hanging hardware - lighting - labels - captions - cases, vitrines and cabinets - and adapting alternative exhibition spaces. It is complete with illustrations, sources, a bibliography, and an index.
