Parents and Educators

While the Museum is closed, you can continue to enjoy the collection through our eMuseum plus these fun, educational resources designed to spark the imagination of art explorers of all ages. Grown-ups welcome, too!

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.
