The Memorial Art Gallery has commissioned a 25-foot stainless steel sculpture by Albert Paley as one of the anchor installations of its planned Centennial Sculpture Park.
The new work, titled Soliloquy, will be sited at MAG’s Goodman Street entrance and installed in August of 2013 as the Gallery counts down to the 100th anniversary.
Soliloquy is the gift of the Cameros Family and Ann Mowris Mulligan, with additional support from Bank of America Charitable Foundation, the Herdle-Moore Fund, the Rubens Family Foundation, the Estate of Susan Einsenhart Schilling and the Clara and Edwin Strasenburgh Fund. Read the Press Release.
Paley joins three other celebrated artists commissioned to create site-specific works for the park—Wendell Castle, Jackie Ferrara and Tom Otterness. “The Paley commission completes our vision of four new works by internationally acclaimed artists for the Centennial Sculpture Park,” says director Grant Holcomb. “Best of all, two of the four are Rochester’s.”
