Tips for Choosing Art Pedestals for Traveling, Public Art Shows

With warm weather just a few months away, it won’t be long before the public art show circuit starts to fire up. So now is an excellent time to think about what type of art pedestals you’ll need for your traveling displays. After all, it’s not merely enough to have wonderful art. It has to be presented in a manner that’s likely to capture show participants’ attention. With that said, here are a few tips for choosing the perfect art pedestals for traveling exhibits:

White Laminate Gallery Pedestal with Decorative Vase

Go Neutral: When looking through the various art pedestal options, take a moment to think about color finishes. They can really impact a traveling exhibition’s aesthetics. In general, the art pedestals’ color finishes should complement the exhibition space as well as the artwork that will be featured during the show. Thus, selecting a freestanding, solid black, white, frosted or clear acrylic art pedestal may prove to be the wisest choice. They tend to fit in well with a wide variety of indoor/outdoor art exhibition venues’ decor.

Be Innovative: If you plan on bringing a display wall to the traveling art exhibits, consider being innovative in your booth’s layout. For example, you could attach wedge pedestals to the booth’s walls. They would help add depth and visual interest to the exhibit as well as extra floor space. Our wedge pedestals are ideal for such applications because they attach quickly and can safely hold artwork that weighs up to 100 pounds.

Clear Acrylic Art Pedestal with Scuplture

Maximize Square Footage: Lastly, consider selecting a combination of art pedestals that allow you to fully maximize the booth space given at each traveling exhibition stop. For instance, in addition to the wedges that we mentioned earlier, you may want to invest in cube tables, columns and art pedestals that feature built-in turntables or lighting.
