Where are the display areas on the corridor walls?

There are a total of twelve areas for wall display (Photo, 21 KB) in public corridors on four different floors of the building. Select the link for each floor to view a map of the display area. Please note that we cannot accommodate requests for specific wall space. The Artwork Display Team will determine where your artwork will be displayed.

  • No artwork should weigh more than 20 lbs.
  • No artwork can be more than 32" in height. Available wall space HEIGHT for hanging is approximately 32" (from wainscoting to the Picture System molding)
  • A hanging wire is required on the back of each artwork to utilize the security hardware
  • Each artwork must be able to hang from the rod and hooks provided with this hanging system (NOTE: works on paper may be hung with clips; however, they will not be insured)
  • Each artwork must hang ABOVE the existing marble wainscoting (which has a height of 54" from the floor)
  • Lighting in the corridors is indirect and levels vary in the different locations
