The designers of the Cleveland Museum of Art study room have come up with an ingenious system for the viewing of two dimensional works, whether they are prints, drawings, paintings, manuscripts, photographs or other similar materials. The wall folds out when in use and can be adjusted to the height or width of the objects. Then, it miraculously folds back into a flat wall when not needed for a class or researcher’s visit. The wall is large enough for several dozen works of smaller size but flexible enough (and strong enough) to accommodate large, framed work of significant weight.
Congratulations to Jane Glaubinger, curator of prints and Heather Lemonedes, curator of drawings, on the success of their new study center.
