So you’ve purchased a work of art … now what? From hanging 60 inches from center to nailing that gallery-wall look, you’ll discover the secrets of installing works of art from Oklahoma Contemporary’s own preparator extraordinaire, Johnny Antonelli. In this three-hour workshop, you’ll tour ArtNow to view real live installation and lighting techniques in situ, then return to the Studios Building for hands-on practice. You’ll then learn how to plan for perfection, install the most common types of hardware and repair old holes in your wall. All supplies are included — just bring your own hammer.
