Albert Paley has been active as an artist for over 30 years. At his studio in Rochester, New York, he employs ten people full time. He is the first metal sculptor to receive the coveted Lifetime Achievement Award from the American Institute of Architects, the AIA’s highest award to a non-architect. Commissioned by both public and private corporations, Paley has completed more than 50 site-specific works. Recently completed works include a 40 ton sculpture for Adobe Systems in San Jose, CA, major entrance rotunda gates for the new San Francisco Civic Center Courthouse, main entry gates for the Naples Museum of Art in Naples, FL, and a sculptural relief for Wellington Place, Toronto, Canada. Paley will begin work soon on a monumental sculpture for the Rochester Institute of Technology, which will be his largest work to date. His work can be found nationally and internationally in the permanent collections of over 30 museums, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Museum of Fine Arts Boston, Philadelphia Museum of Art, Toledo Museum of Art, and the Victoria and Albert Museum and the British Museum, both in London.
