Displaying Art on Display Pedestals


How do you showcase a masterpiece? By resting it on a stunning display stand. Museums use display pedestals in their galleries to protect them from foot traffic, control the temperature, and prevent visitors from touching the art. This facilitates a safe display of their precious objects in a secure case with illumination within an organized floor plan for visitor flow..

The display below has lighting above the artifact to offer an enhanced view of the object. The lights are UV safe to keep the artwork in a preserved condition. At below right, a sculpture also be illustrated with a dust cover. This is more practical in a home display. The height of the pedestal elevates the artwork to a comfortable viewing level. For larger objects the base will be shorter. For small pieces, it will be taller to bring the details closer to the visitors’ eyes.

Art Galleries also like to place their objects on display stands. By placing one object or a grouping of several related objects, they emphasize the beauty of the art and add visual individuality to the object amidst a group of artworks. Below we see a contemporary art gallery with abstract sculptures place on impromptu wooden blocks spread out comfortable distance for walking up to the artwork and around them.
