Help me hang particle board?

I have a piece of local, home-grown artwork done on a length of scrap shelving -- particle board with a laminate. I'm unsure how to hang it without damaging it.

There are two eye hooks screwed into the edge on the top. The piece is about 20x14 and is somewhat heavy since it is on 5/8 particle board. I'm worried that if I hang it from those eye hooks eventually they might pull out taking chunks with them. What's the best way to hang this without damaging it and how can I ensure it will be strong enough to hold it securely?
P.S. I totally did not notice what this was painted on until after we purchased it -- I assumed it was canvas. Anyway, it's not as junky looking as it sounds, just odd. I actually kind of love that this guy just grabs random crap and paints on it and it looks so good.
