Student Exhibits

The Rockwell Museum Student Gallery is devoted to displaying artwork created by students from local school districts and summer youth programs.

Our educators have a long tradition of working with area school students and their teachers to organize student art exhibits and we partner with schools, community organizations, and statewide agencies to present an ongoing schedule of exhibitions of art by students from the area.

Many schools have been forced to reduce or even cut art classes altogether. Now more than ever, communities need cultural institutions to help bridge the gap in offering artistic opportunities to students.

Current Student Exhibit 

Pinhole Photography by Tommy McFall

ExtraOrdinary Pinhole Photography

Exhibit dates: February 14 – March 20, 2017

EXTRAORDINARY PINHOLE PHOTOGRAPHY STUDENT EXHIBIT is a special art exhibit created by fourth-grade students of Hugh Gregg and Winfield Street Elementary Schools. Students had the opportunity to construct their own pinhole cameras and learn about the history, science, and art of photography. The project is a collaboration between the Corning–Painted Post Area School District, the Regional Science & Discovery Center, the Chemung County Historical Society, and The Rockwell Museum.

This exhibit contains both the students’ “extraordinary” developed prints and their writing samples.

This project was made possible in part by a Public School Teaching Artist grant received by the Regional Science & Discovery Center from The ARTS Council of the Southern Finger Lakes.
