The Rockwell is open 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. all summer long!


KIDS ROCKWELL Art Lab is a new interactive family studio, located just around the corner from the Museum at 36 E. Market St. in Corning. This summer, the Art Lab features Framed: Step Into Art™, created by the Minnesota Children’s Museum!

This summer at the KIDS ROCKWELL Art Lab, step inside the framework of famous paintings and experience art like never before, May 25 – September 8, 2019.

Children and adults can enjoy an imaginary noontime meal in Grant Wood’s Dinner for Threshers, climb into a tent and explore camping gear in John Singer Sargent’s Camp at Lake O’Hara and add “corn husks” to the flower tower in Diego Rivera’s Corn Festival. Enter Clementine Hunter’s Big Chicken and get behind the reins of a giant rooster. Visitors can explore a small collection of Mona Lisa prints featuring the original and famous parodies, then step behind a cutout version and replace Mona Lisa’s face with their own. This exhibition is bilingual – enjoy in English or Spanish!

This exhibition is made possible by local sponsors John G. Ullman & Associates Foundation, Inc., Community Foundation of Elmira-Corning and the Finger Lakes, Inc., and Peter and Kathleen Schweizer, with thanks to our local media sponsor, Mountain Home Magazine.
