How to hang art work/etc. on curved walls? Revision #1

Answered

I posted this question a few days ago. I received numerous ( & original! ) suggestions. Thank you! However - I wasn't clear: the walls CURVE!!! If your head is against the wall - the wall is 2' farther AWAY from your FEET.

How's that for a dilemma? Any Earth Ship owners out there???

Thank you very much!!

    I was one of the numerous ones who answered. I thought it was curved horizontally! Well, now we've gotten you in a real mess! haha
    Maybe you could stencil the wall or paint a scene or design on it. Let us know more about this, it's interesting!

      Mess? no.... just a real head scratcher! Since my painting skills are abominable - & there's TONS of art work on hand - am about to resort to installing rows of industrial Velcro on the walls - & to the backs of the frames. Perhaps velcro wall patterns? Don't think I could stand straight rows of Velcro staring at me.... ( not to mention the color clash....? )
      Thank you for your time to try to 'engineer' a solution!!

    Are you saying it is like a cone shape. If so you would need to hang your picture from a bracket.

    I'd hang fluid art pieces like textiles: quilt, kimono ,rug etc. Use curved rods with clips, maybe store-bought or made by hand out of copper or another bendable metal.

      A truly novel idea!!! Hadn't thought about it - but now I will! Thank you!

    O.K. so the wall curves from the top backwards. How long is the wall from floor to ceiling? Is this the only wall in this room (what room is it?) to hang art? My suggestion would be not to hang art in the usual way if indeed this is the wall you want to use, but to hang free swinging shelves from the wall, shelves that are like shallow boxes. Place any art you want to display within these boxes.

      ALL exterior walls are curved..... floor to ceiling = 14'..... afraid hanging boxes would impinge on the floor space below.... C'est difficile - yes?
      Thank you for an idea I hadn't even thought of!!

    O.K. now I know exactly what you mean when you say Quonset hut. It still has a measurable height, length and width. And it must have interior divisions. for separate rooms . . . like bedrooms, bathrooms? I guess you could restrict your art hanging to those walls or as Fisher says use fabric art. I bet your interior temps are always the same. Is that right?

      The trick is to keep the concrete shell at a constant temperature. We have 1 mid-sized wood stove on the 1st floor - which heats the entire 2 story house. 1st hard frost hit a few days ago - & we're lighting the stove at bedtime to combat the night time temperature drop. You have to put up with periods where it's a little too warm - or too cool - but we don't have the temperature changes a wood frame home does.

    I would hang it from the top then screw two L-hooks into the wall at the bottom to hold it snug against the wall.

    use Velcro on all four corners.

    Am thinking of a design to place the sticky side of Velcro on the walls - so I can move Velcro backed frames around on them. Just don't think straight lines every 8"+/- down the wall is very appealing..... ( not to mention the color contrast between it & the wall paint....? )
