How Do I Hang These Fuckin' Things?

In about 48 hours, I need to hang the originals of these
(polyoramas) at a local place. What is the best way to do this?

Each drawing is about 2" x 4", and between the two sets, there are about 30 of them.
I had thought it might be interesting to mount them on black foamcore—with no borders—butt them up against each other, and just go in there and move them around every couple of days. I'd tack them to the wall with poster-stick or something. Without glass, that's not so nice looking, though.
Frames present a problem, too: the border separates each image to the point where it may not be clear that the drawings are rearrangeable. I can put a couple together in several different frames, and make some sort of diagram explaining it, but that seems unsatisfying.
What is a good and classy way to hang these things, making it clear that they're modular, moveable, and individually for sale? I am open to spending money, as long as I can get the materials and put everything together fairly quickly (i.e., in 48 hours). Thanks!
