Tell me and my friends how to hang two very large, priceless, unframed works on paper without damaging the paper at all.

The DIY gallery that I run with my friends has to hang two large drawings (they each measure approximately 5 feet by 8 feet). They are - trust me on this - priceless and all of the usual ways we would hang an unframed work on paper seem like they won't do. Clips might dent the paper, the paper might peel away from artist tape with map pins, and actually pinning the drawing is out of the question. We will not be able to buy magnets before the opening and mounting them is out of the question. Any suggestions?
