World-renowned metal sculptor Albert Paley has been working on 13 newly executed sculptures that will be installed on Park Avenue in New York City as part of The Fund for Park Avenue's Temporary Public Art Collection. WXXI has been given unprecedented access to Paley and his team, documenting the project every step of the way. The six-part series rolls out one new episode every Thursday morning (5/16-6/20), with the finale on June 20, featuring the installation of the sculptures on Park Avenue in New York City.
