    Building on a tradition of collaboration, The Rockwell Museum and Corning Museum of Glass are pleased to once again team up and host a contemporary artist in Corning. This year, we welcome multidisciplinary artist, educator and curator Melissa Vandenberg to create a site-specific installation at The Rockwell, coupled with a week-long guest appearance in the Amphitheater Hot Shop where she’ll work collaboratively with the gaffers to realize her designs in glass.

    Members of both The Corning Museum of Glass and The Rockwell Museum are invited to this exclusive opportunity to hear from Melissa Vandenberg about her work and her experience in the Hot Shop. The hour will include a casual panel discussion with the artist and the lead gaffer, plus ample time for members to meet the artist and ask questions.

    Melissa Vandenberg finds inspiration in ordinary materials, using items like matches, quilts, stickers, popsicles and temporary tattoos to explore issues of power, national identity, mortality, patriotism and pride. Vandenberg will use hundreds of handkerchiefs to create a site-specific installation in The Rockwell’s rotunda entryway – Antigravity will be on view at The Rockwell March 9, 2019, through March of 2020. Corning Museum of Glass members that attend the event are invited to visit The Rockwell for free that day to see Vandenberg’s unique installation.
