    Hello my local museum wants me to bring in some of my photos to display for their grand opening. I have never displayed any of my work to the public so I need some help. What is the best size of photo? No bigger then 16x20 ) What is a good frame? there are so many to choose from. Do you want big frame, wood , metal, thin, fat,? Also they asked me to mark them for sale. I have no idea what to charge or what to even ask. $10,20,1000? I have no clue. The only thing they asked was no bigger then 16x20 inside the frame and no saw tooth hangers.
    Do I sign the photos front,back, not at all?
    thanks for the help.

    It all depends on the pictures! Some might look better small in a huge frame, some might look better big without a frame. You are good enough to be displayed in a museum... be creative! Have fun with it!

    Ask the museum exactly how your pictures will be displayed, and what kind of space they will have...
