The museum is looking to place our mural by Stefan Knapp (see above
photo, right) on a building large enough to display this famous
mural which originally was on the side of Alexander's building on
Route4 in Paramus. We are looking at potential buildings within the
new Dream Mall that is coming soon to the Meadowlands.This mural was highlighted in a recent issue of
New Jersey magazine and is valued at over $1,000,000. The mural was
highlighted recently in the
Bergen Record and again in

extraordinaire, has his finger on the pulse of the downtown New
York City Club scene. Some of his
recent work include

sculptor, Jim Gary, has lived and worked in New Jersey all of
his life. He grew up in Colts Neck and has always remained based in
central Jersey -- but the world became his market. Part of the
Bergen Museum collection included Mr. Gary's sculpture “road
runner”. His work is represented in the collections of many
corporate, institutional, and private collections.
Jim Gary has been featured on a myriad of domestic television
programs -- by Walter Cronkite, Public Broadcasting, Christopher
Reeves, the California Academy of Sciences, and many others.
Jim Gary is the recipient of numerous awards, including the N.J.
Governor's "Pioneer Award" and the New Jersey Educators Association
"Art Educator of the Year" on two different occasions.
What makes this dynamic artist so different? For one thing, he's a
"self made" artist who overcame his early indifference to education.
He shares with others his experiences on the journey from street
artist to world class traveling museum exhibitor. He challenges his
audience to 'see' things differently, to think and use the
imagination and most importantly perseverance. For more information,

Stefan Knapp is best known for his vibrant enamel murals
which can be seen in a large number of museums and public
buildings throughout the world. The Bergen Museum plans to display
his work soon in Bergen County.
Stefan Knapp was a 20th century artist with great
vision, a keen sense of color and design, and an innovator
driven with boundless energy. He broke traditional
boundaries and took the medium of enameling on metal to
places it had never been before, and to some extent, since.
His enameled mural (above) for Alexander's Department store
in Paramus, New Jersey was considered the world's largest
painting in 1960. Imagine an enamel mural 200 feel long and
50 feel high! Few artists have impacted the medium of
enameling on metal as Stefan Knapp did.
Knapp is pictured above creating the famous
"Alexander" mural in an airplane hanger in England.
