The galley painting display storage allows museum personnel to arrange large and small framed pieces in close proximity to one another and maximize the available space. The open area between each provides a large enough gap to ensure nothing gets damaged. Slight gaps in-between aisles allow clean airflow and ensure items on rear racks avoid pressing up against those in front. Visitors strolling through public access areas have a full view of collections and can look through the glass wall to appreciate items on display.
