Wow! Over 800 pieces of art in one show! I am impressed (and humbled!)
The area I can show in is the size of an average "media center" with a
couple of floor to ceiling room-length bulletin boards. One problem for me
is that when we have our "product fairs" all the other teachers are
exhibiting, as well. We already have three open houses and two product
fairs, so a special art fair wouldn't work. So I'm pretty much stuck with
my space.

One rather sneaky solution I have come across is to put student portfolios
out on tables for people to look through. That way, even if it isn't UP it
is available, especially for parents, and strangely enough, we get a whole
lot of grandparents as well.

Another thing I'm working on is using the digital camera more and putting
work up on my art department website. I can take 15 minutes a day and
change a few at a time. Took me a while to learn the html, but I'm getting
there.

I have a colleague who does a lot of video taping of kids's work and kids
at work, which she then plays at product fairs.
