Walker Zanger recently contributed to the renovation of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, specifically for The Charles Engelhard Court in The American Wing of the museum, Walker Zanger was hand-selected to supply luxury stone accents and flooring.
The Charles Engelhard Court has welcomed museum patrons to The American Wing of the museum, and after two years of renovation, the court is now complete. Providing a beautiful palette for the 60 large-scale sculptures, mosaics, stained glass and architectural elements, Walker Zanger stone is featured throughout the entire space. Jerusalem Ramon Yellow Marble, a stone quarried and fabricated in Israel, blankets the floor. Treads, curved benches and planters are formed with Walker Zanger Seagrass Limestone quarried from Turkey and hand-crafted by skilled stone masons in Italy.
“We are honored to be part of the elaborate and careful renovation of The American Wing,” says Jonathan Zanger, president of Walker Zanger. “To have our products surrounded by time-honored pieces of American artwork is a true testament to the artistry and craftsmanship we incorporate into every Walker Zanger creation.”
The opening of The Charles Engelhard Court is the second phase of a five-year project to reconfigure, renovate and upgrade nearly every section of The American Wing by 2011.
