Concert in the Gallery

Featuring The Ladles

Friday, January 17

The Ladles have three-part female harmony perfected, but their sound is more than that. They are an amalgamation of their respective histories and influences, blending swing, old-time, folk, pop and contemporary choral music into a sound all their own.


Showing Off:

19th Century Portraiture

from the Arnot Art Museum

Paintings were the primary mode of portraiture in the 19th century, as photography was still not yet widely available, and provided a vehicle through which to “show off.” See this intimate selection of works from the Arnot Art Museum through February 2.

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.
