from--Oodles of Art: Art Show I used to do this for YAM show at my school. Wire permanently strung across the top of walls, butcher paper folded several times over at the top for strength...and then stapled over wire. I used different colors of butcher paper for each grade level...so parents could find their kids work better. When I did this I got help from parents to make panels for 700 art works...and to hang the panels. We cut a V into the bottom to make them look like banners.
