It is the responsibility of the artist to send the show chair the title, medium, and price of the new piece so that a wall tag can be created. Each wall artist is limited to four pieces of wall art at a time. It is up to the discretion of the show chair to decide whether the new artwork flows with the curation of the exhibition.
