Paley on Park Avenue: New York City, WXXI's hour-long documenary that follows world-renowned sculptor, Albert Paley, as he creates 13 original sculptures for The Fund for Park Avenue’s Temporary Public Art Collection in New York City, received such praise from viewers when it premiered on WXXI-TV Thursday, December 12 that we're presenting an encore broadcast Monday, December 16 at 8 p.m. It's also archived on the web at WXXI.org/paleynyc/live for art lovers and Paley fans across the country.
You may remember last May when WXXI launched its first multi-media series that followed world-renowned sculptor Albert Paley as he created 13 original pieces for installation on Park Avenue in New York City. The six-part web-only series shared the behind-the-scenes story. After the installation in mid-June, WXXI’s production team continued to shoot the sculptures and events surrounding the project, while capturing personal stories about Paley and his work from Paley himself, as well as his wife Frances, his staff, and community leaders.
Now you can witness the culmination of one of the most ambitious projects that any sculptor in the Fund for Park Avenue’s Temporary Public Art Collection has undertaken in Paley on Park Avenue: New York City. The documentary, narrated by two-time Emmy Award winning journalist, artist, and photographer Jay Schadler, will also airs on PBS stations across the country this winter.
