I'm an artist and I want to be a part of "The Gallery"

The suspension structure is a rectangular grid of aircraft cable, 12 cables suspended from 6 harnessed trees, with a perimeter and center cable for stability, hanging 15 feet up in the sky as shown in this diagram:
Canopy

In order for your concept to join with “The Gallery” it must meet the following requirements:

  • The installation must weigh < 100 lbs as a combined total when suspended from the wire grid
  • All items in the display must be weatherproof (sun, rain, snow, wind)
  • All items must be vandal proof (no moving parts to grab or fall)
  • All items must be able to be anchored safety onto aircraft cable
  • No items may suspend lower that than 12 feet of clearance from the ground (wires are 15 feet so 3 feet hang or slack is available on cables)
  • The display must be a good choice for the community and not be offensive in any way. Joyful and inspiring creations are best.
  • All items may light up but can only use 19 AMPS of power
  • All items must be able to be purchased in multiples, and must be affordable within a modest budget
  • We prefer concepts that are environmentally friendly or are recycled or reused materials
  • The installation must look great suspended.
