This is an excellent idea however how is that selected spot protected? I
get very nervous when someone suggest displaying work directly at feast.
A well meaning admirer with a sweating goblet can cause countless 
amounts of damage.   

Comments like "we need to display more..." make me realize how few
know that  there ARE displays at events of scrolls but usually end up
with the 
A&S  display, sometimes several blocks away from any other activity.
don't see A&S work or scroll work because the display location is so

Agreed.  I think the key issue here is that A&S displays and scroll
should be in more prominent locations so that it is easy to get to them,
or after court.

Agreed however we would have to consider those that are not on board and
those that have to leave directly after court.  Again I'm always for
the display of scrolls.  I just wish such displays weren't hidden so far
