2 Installation and Hanging Options:
Option 1 Ready to hang removable backsplash: You can just hang the framed glass art piece directly on your wall as a removable backsplash. There is hanging wire attached to the back of the frame. Make sure that the hook you put in your wall is either in a stud or a expandable wall anchor. You can keep the piece from sliding around by putting removable adhesive putty on the back of the four corners.
Option 2 Permanent Installation of entire framed artwork. You can glue the frame and backing board to the wall using a Omni Grip White tile adhesive (available at Home Depot) or two part epoxy.
The advantage of doing it this way rather than gluing the glass itself directly to the wall, is you may be able to remove it later without destroying the artwork, The frame would likely get damaged it when you pry it off, but the art itself could be salvaged if you are careful. You can remove the hanging hardware by loosening the 2 screws of the strap hangars (that contain the wire) and the strap hangars will just slide out.
Installation Tip: If you tile up to the bottom where you want the piece glued, the frame or glass artwork will have something to rest on as the adhesive sets. You can also temporarily screw a board to the wall for the piece to rest on as the glue dries, then remove the board after the glue has set and tile around it.
Cleaning Instructions: You can clean with Windex and a lint free cloth, spraying the Windex on the cloth rather that on the glass itself so that the cleaner does not puddle between the glass and the frame
