At the Simsbury High School, in Simsbury, CT, they bought about 100
corrigated cardboard boxes, each approximately 30" x 30" x 30". They are
all painted white with flat latex and a roller, and can be touched up as
needed. For art shows they can be stacked in a variety of arrangements.
2-D art works are then masking taped or stapled onto each face. Larger
works need two or more faces. They can even be used as sculpture stands,
although for heavy stuff, the boxes might need to be filled with books or
something to support the weight.

The really neat part is that when it's time to put them away, just flatten
them and stack them somewhere until next time. Maybe a household moving
company would be interested in donating boxes, if approached properly.

Good luck, and remember...PRESENTATION is VERY important!
