“Cavalcade” by Albert Paley

 

A colorful iconic sculpture, titled “Cavalcade”, reaches 40-feet into the sky, making it the tallest public art in the Palm Beaches. It is a permanent structure, commissioned by the developers of 500 Ocean. The five additional Paley sculptures are on are on loan for the yearlong exhibit ending in September 30, 2018 and are also available for purchase.

 

 

Albert Paley describes his artwork Cavalcade as, “The sculpture provides a dramatic silhouette with spire-like shapes projecting into the sky. These vertical elements have their basis in my interpretation of palm fronds. Although the sculpture is not kinetic, the interlaced folded metal shapes indicate movement as if they are being articulated by the air from the sea. The sculptures dynamism will change with the passage of time.”

 

 

“Art in Public Places creates a sense of place and enhances our community’s identity.” said Debby Coles-Dobay, Public Arts Manager. “The Albert on the Avenue national exhibition, powerfully connects with visitors, creating cultural tourism that contributes to the City’s economic development and branding.”
