Carnegie Hall is a well-known concert venue located in Midtown Manhattan, New York City that was originally built by philanthropist Andrew Carnegie in 1891. Renowned for its architectural beauty, history, and acoustics, it is one of the most famous venues in the United States for classical and popular music; not to mention the many diverse non-musical acts that perform there annually. Carnegie Hall uses its own artistic programming, development, and marketing departments to coordinate about 250 performances each season.
In 1983 the building was extensively renovated and Smooth-On mold rubbers were there to help. Large panels of the front façade were restored to their original appearance using PMC®- 724 urethane mold rubber. This inexpensive rubber was thickened to a paste-like consistency for the vertical surface applications using Cab-O-Sil and cured to a durable rubber with negligible shrinkage.
