Q: Okay, it's the end of the school year, my now done with kindergartener brought home enough art to stock MoMA. Of course, I'll purge some of it, but I want to keep some of it too. I can figure out how to manage the small pieces, but the giant paintings, what do I do with them? I don't want to put them on the wall, I just want to save them until I have left behind the guilt/sentimentality that prevents me from to purging them. What to do? Where to put them? Most of the art storage stuff I see online is cheesy. What are you doing with your kid's art?

Editor: I think the answer is obvious: turn one room of your home into a temperature-controlled archival depository. Ha! Readers, how do you handle large pieces of artwork your kids bring home from school?
