Art of Exhibition Mount Making

  • Instructors: Shelly Uhlir (National Museum of the American Indian Mount Maker) and Jon Pressler (President + Senior Mount Maker of On the Verge Designs)
    Learning how to make object mounts and solder with a blow torch was such a cool experience! I feel very lucky to have learned from the best. This course has helped me become hyperaware of how and where I will place objects in cases and vitrines with careful consideration of conservation-safe materials, light, and object access.
