This could very well end up being the only metal show in your life that lacks moshing or an influx of obnoxious crowd surfers: a chance to walk around the Mennello Museum of American Art with famed metal sculptor Albert Paley as he leads you through his Forged Works exhibition. Size matters as Paley takes you outside the museum and into the sculpture garden to show off the significantly larger (and officially permanent) part of the collection: "Interlace" and "Star," both of which are dedicated to the museum's co-founder, Marilyn Logsdon Mennello. Enjoy unparalleled insight into the various pieces, and take pleasure in the fact that the only thing your wallet will be needed for is to purchase a signature Hanson's Shoe Repair cocktail to sip during your stroll.
