April 2013: Paley on Park Ave

Paley on Park Ave previewOn April 23, members of the Gallery’s Georgia O’Keeffe and Claude Monet Societies gathered at Albert Paley’s Rochester studio for a reception and sneak preview of the artist’s latest project. Paley on Park Ave—an outdoor exhibition of 13 new works—opens June 29 at various locations along Park Avenue in midtown Manhattan. It remains on view through November 9, 2013.

It’s been a busy year for Paley. He’ll soon begin fabrication of Soliloquy, a 25-foot stainless steel sculpture that will greet visitors at MAG’s Goodman Street entrance. It’s the last of four site-specific installations commissioned for Centennial Sculpture Park. learn more
