ParaMounts is a group of skilled mount makers who specialize in the design, fabrication and installation of artifact-specific, conservation-quality mounts for museums, traveling exhibits and private collectors. Our approach to mount making is founded on the belief that the conservation of artifacts and objects of art on exhibit is of paramount importance. While other companies in this business space make mounts as an addendum to their primary business, ParaMounts focuses all of our considerable knowledge, skills and abilities on the creation of mounts that conserve and display artifacts without detracting from the exhibit design or complicating periodic removal for routine maintenance and conservation. Our client list includes national museums, privately funded historical societies and regional museums as well as private collections that vary from fine art to antiquities, sports and sports memorabilia.

Mission: Specializing in the design, fabrication and installation of conservation-quality artifact mounts for museums, traveling exhibits and private collectors.

The ParaMounts crew is still doing the shelter in place thing and we sincerely hope you are too.

The inimitable Christopher Robinson just dropped off a thumb drive of photos from some of our most recent jobs. So, let's take a little virtual trip to Fort Larned National Historical Site in or near Larned, Kansas.

To see more of the exhibits at this 19th century fort, after it's safe to travel again, visit Fort Larned NHS.

So, the ParaMounts crew is totally doing the shelter in place thing which means there are no new projects happening right now. Time for a little trip down museum memory lane.

National Museum of the Great Lakes

Here's our buddy, Carrie "Shipwreck" Sowden with another cool artifact from the National Museum of the Great Lakes!

Traditional figureheads were rarely commissioned for Great Lakes vessels because of their expense. The origins of this artifact are a bit of mystery... you'll have to watch to find out! #HistoryFromHome #MuseumFromHome #MuseumMoments

So Facebook sent us a message that people who like our page haven't heard from us on a while. Hellloooooo...the partial government shutdown has put several projects on hold. Time to put an end to this farce and get back to work.
