Three-dimensional artworks may be displayed on the floor or on a pedestal (pedestals will be provided by the Figge Art Museum). Artworks may not be suspended from the ceiling. The Figge Art Museum reserves the right not to install any piece deemed not fit for exhibition due to their concern about the safety of the piece.
