Long Description:
Star was purchased in the memory of the Honorable Marilyn Logsdon Mennello. Created in 1991 by artist Albert Paley, he is the first metal sculptor to receive the coveted Lifetime Achievement Award from the American Institute of Architects, the AIA’s highest award to a non-architect.

“The allure of Paley’s art comes though its intrinsic sense of integration of art and architecture,” as one noted architect stated.

Commissioned by both public institutions and private corporations, Paley has completed more than 50 site-specific works. Some notable examples are the Portal Gates for the Renwick Gallery of the Smithsonian Institution in Washington DC, the Portal Gates for the New York State Senate Chambers in Albany, a plaza sculpture for AT&T in Atlanta, GA, a sculpture and plaza designed for Adobe Systems in San Jose, CA, major entrance rotunda gates for the State Courthouse in San Francisco, the main entrance gates for the Naples Museum of Art, Naples, FL, as well as a 65-foot sculpture for the entry court of Bausch and Lomb’s headquarters in Rochester, NY. Recently completed works include, a pair of entrance sculptures for the Columbia Public Library, Columbia, Missouri, exterior archways for the town of Perry, Iowa, Sentinel, a monumental plaza sculpture for Rochester Institute of Technology, which is his largest work to date and Animals Always, a ceremonial archway in Forest Park for the Saint Louis Zoo.

Located on the grounds of the Mennello Museum of American Art, on East Princeton St. in Orlando, Florida. Between North Mills Av. and Camden Rd.
The sculpture can been seen 24 hours a day for free in the sculpture garden. The museum sits on a lake and has a large grassy area filled with many different sculptures for the public to view. Is well maintained, has sidewalks, chairs for sitting, large shade trees and a bridge to cross the lake. Spend some quiet time viewing the sculptures, lake & water fowl.

Free unless you decide to visit the musuem for a current exhibition.
The Museum also seeks to enrich the public through special exhibitions, publications, and programs that celebrate outstanding traditional and contemporary American artists.
