The Smithsonian’s Paley Gates

By Larissa Masny, Gallery Buzz Editor

The Smithsonian American Art Museum is home to gates designed by internationally-renown Rochesterian artist Albert Paley. Rochester’s own Memorial Art Gallery will be hosting a major solo exhibition of Paley’s work Spring 2010. Read why they are reinstalling Paley’s gates at the Smithsonian’s Renwick Gallery by clicking here.

You may have seen an example of Albert Paley’s sculptures around town. His sculptures welcome visitors to Rochester Institute of Technology and the Bausch & Lomb headquarters downtown.


Another welcomes visitors in the Memorial Art Gallery’s Vanden Brul Pavilion. We hope to see you at the Memorial Art Gallery to see his work this spring! A great way to experience an exhibition at the Memorial Art Gallery is to come to our exhibition opening parties. Mark your calendars for Saturday, May 1, 2010 to experience art and entertainment throughout the Memorial Art Gallery in celebration of this exhibition.
