This question talks about the potential for parallel structure errors, as the two actions, creating the art and displaying the art, must be fused in parallel way.

Option A :- Incorrect
The use of neither nor in this option proves abortive as it does not follow parallelism. Prevented does not go in line with creating

Option B :- Incorrect
Neither have and nor displaying commits the parallelism errors and does not follow it.

Option C :- correct
Creating the art or displaying
This follows proper parallelism and this makes this option the correct one.

Option D:- Incorrect
The use of nor is ambiguous, it should have been preceded by neither.

Option E :- Incorrect
The option is incorrect because creating and prevented are not parallel.
