Who We Are
Visitors to The Rockwell experience Art About America -- the people, land and ideas that shape America through the eyes of American artists.

Education Through Art

The Rockwell is more than “just” a museum – we’re a citizen of the Corning community, bringing arts into local schools and onto our streets, telling stories about the American experience through art.
