Who We Are
Visitors to The Rockwell explore art about the American experience — 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.
