Albert Paley: Portals and Gates was an exhibit installed to celebrate the addition of Transformation to the campus collection at Iowa State University, as well as the opening of ISU’s new Christian Petersen Art Museum. This exhibition was focused on illustrating the development of Albert Paley’s gate designs throughout his career. The exhibit covered ground from as early as Paley’s first Portal Gates (1974) up to his most recent gate design, Transformation. Iowa State University currently has the nation’s largest campus public art collection with over 600 works from both national and international artists.
