I have been placed on an advisory group for a proposed piece of
public art/sculpture.  The artist and community members who designed
this sculpture would like to have "permanent" items on display in
window boxes within the sculpture.

So far, I have been the most vocal (putting it lightly) about
placing anything where sunlight, condensation, vandalism, etc, will
affect these items over the short or long term.  I have suggested
ways of making the objects more permanent; bronzing, screening on
ceramic tile, etc.

What I am asking the list is, has anyone attempted anything close to
this? What was done to keep items from getting damaged? What
materials were used?
