Albert Paley is a modernist American metal sculptor, who was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1944. He earned both a BFA and an MFA from the Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia. Paley initially worked as a goldsmith and moved to Rochester, New York in 1969 to teach at the Rochester Institute of Technology, where he now holds an endowed chair. Paley designed "Animals Always," his first representational work, a sculpture located at the southeast corner of the world-renowned St. Louis Zoological Park. In 1998 he received the Artist of the Year Award of the Arts & Cultural Council for Greater Rochester.
