Hanging at the Biggs
Public Tile Project
Hanging at the Biggs is a permanent tile art display of images supplied by supporters of the Biggs Museum of American Art. It is similar to a commemorative brick project, but with color pictures! You can become a part of the Biggs Museum history with a customized wall tile: children’s art, family photographs, fine art, quotes, company logos, commemorative dates and much more can be scanned and printed on glass to show community pride. The Hanging at the Biggs public tile project will be installed on the walls of the Museum’s new entrance beginning in Fall of 2013.

Images can be printed on up to four, four-inch-square, contiguous tiles. Customized four-inch tiles are $50 each. Mail an image on disc, email your picture, scan your work at the Museum or sign up for one of the Hanging at the Biggs workshops and leave your lasting impression at the Museum’s new entrance! All proceeds to benefit “The New Biggs."
