June 28 to Sept. 28: "American Metal: The Art of Albert Paley"

Distinguished metalsmith Albert Paley has been turning iron, steel and bronze into art for 50 years. Some of his large-scale, outdoor sculptural pieces, which he calls “architectural jewelry,” can be seen at locations throughout D.C., and this summer you can see more examples of his work at the Corcoran Gallery of Art. "American Metal: The Art of Albert Paley" opens tomorrow, when admission to the museum will be free thanks to its Free Summer Saturdays promotion.
