Boynton Beach Installs Sculptures Around Town To Promote The Town Square Cultural District

The City of Boynton Beach has been installing large, Albert Paley stainless steel sculptures in various locations around town as part of the city’s effort to increase art in public places. 

It is also the unofficial kickoff to promote the new town square cultural district redevelopment project in east Boynton Beach. 

Titled “Albert on the Avenue,” the project features six Paley sculptures, which are abstract art. They weigh between 2,000 to 6,000+ pounds and are up to 40 feet high.
