Through the Thread by Crystal Gregory

March 2, 2018 – February 17, 2019

The Rockwell introduces an inaugural new exhibition series: Antigravity!  Each year, the museum will commission one emerging artist to create a site-specific installation for The Rockwell’s rotunda entryway. The 2018 inaugural installation will feature the work of sculptor and fiber artist Crystal Gregory. Gregory uses woven lace structures as the foundation of her work, paying particular attention to negative space and light. She experiments by pairing materials not often found together in her work such as hand-woven fabrics and molten pewter or lace and concrete.

NEW! KIDS ROCKWELL Art Lab

Your Rockwell admission ticket now grants you access to the KIDS ROCKWELL Art Lab, a new interactive family studio, located just around the corner from the Museum at 36 E. Market Street in Corning. Young art explorers will love getting creative with hands-on projects; families will love the opportunity for exciting and authentic playtime in a relaxed, drop-in environment. Activity stations at the Art Lab are all inspired by the artwork and architecture of The Rockwell, with the goal of making art accessible to kids and inspiring an appreciation for art at a young age.
