About this Project

The New Orleans Museum of Art, an architectural masterpiece designed by Paul Philippe Cret, recently underwent a major expansion completed in 2020. The new addition, designed by Eskew+Dumez+Ripple, seamlessly blends with the original neoclassical architecture and features a custom-designed skylight that adds to the ambiance of the space.

The skylight, manufactured by Crystal Structures and installed by Zinsel Glass, is a true work of art. Measuring approximately 29 feet long and using 9-foot-long glass panels, the skylight is a testament to the attention to detail and craftsmanship of both Crystal Structures and Zinsel Glass.

Zinsel Glass has partnered with Crystal Structures on several skylight projects, and their expertise is evident in the installation of this stunning piece. The skylight perfectly complements the museum’s architecture and provides a unique and beautiful source of natural light for the new addition.

The New Orleans Museum of Art is home to an extensive collection of over 40,000 works of art, including historical and contemporary pieces. The addition of the Crystal Structures skylight, installed by Zinsel Glass, enhances the visitor experience by creating a captivating and inspiring atmosphere.

With its impressive architecture, world-class art collection, and the stunning Crystal Structures skylight installed by Zinsel Glass, the New Orleans Museum of Art continues to be an essential part of the city’s cultural scene and a must-visit destination for art enthusiasts from around the world.
