Do not use duct tape to hang the kids art if the brick wall(or cement
black wall) is painted, you'll end up ripping off some of the paint
then you really will have problems with your art show. I have had luck
displaying art in our gym, with the wooden bleachers pushed back. I hang
an 18 by 24 inch black piece up (my students do) with four "loopy letter
o"s" to hang it up, the o's made with wide masking tape. Then we hang the
childs are with two or three loopy o's made of thin masking tape. I am
glad we don't have to have the expense of mat boards and hanging the kids
are up without a backing was causing too many rips in their art when the
kids would remove the tape from the picture that had been on the wall,
pressed so firmly.
