Known for his massive public sculptures shown throughout the world Albert Paley will be honored with the Tyler School of Art's Gallery of Success Alumni Award this fall. His current exhibition of 13 massive sculptures up and down Park Ave in New York City is one of his most ambitious projects and is presented by the Fund for Park Avenue's Temporary Public Art Collection and the city's Department of Parks and Recreation. As he explained to Lizzie Simon in the Wall Street Journal, on-line edition, (6/23/13)  "They said I could have all of Park Avenue but I selected the sites within that section because they represent the spectrum, from a financial district, where the sculptures are bolder, through a residential area, where the sculptures are more detailed and intimate."
