Art Collecting 101, Topic 1: Art in Bathrooms

I wanted to start a series to answer some common questions about art collecting, preservation, and the like, so here is the first topic for :

Art Collecting 101

Question:
Can I hang original art in a bathroom or powder room?

Answer:
Moisture is an enemy to original art!
In a small, steamy bathroom, I would not recommend ever hanging original art. It would be better to stick to something better equipped to handle moisture, like a framed art print, framed photograph, or a woven or glass wall-hanging. 
But in a powder room that doesn't get steamy, as long as the piece is framed behind glass or plexiglass, or hung in a place where it won't get splashed on, you have more freedom.
