Concert in the Gallery

Featuring The Brothers Blue

Friday, March 1

As comfortable around a campfire as they are in a concert hall, the band is excited about any opportunity to share honest, heartfelt musical experiences with their ever-growing family of friends: “The Brethren Blue.”



Staff Selections from the Collection

Now On View

The newly-coined movement consists of staff favorites from the permanent collection, including oil paintings, etchings, photography and more, giving the opportunity to showcase unsung treasures from the diverse collection.

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.
