Art is more than a creative way of seeing the world. More than a beautiful way of expressing oneself. Art brings people together. It connects us to other cultures, other times, and also to ourselves.
Many people are surprised to discover not just one, but two world class art museums in a charming small town tucked among the rolling hills of Corning and the Southern Finger Lakes. But what better place to appreciate art than in a part of the country that specializes in slowing down and savoring the very best?
In addition to The Corning Museum of Glass, the largest museum in the world dedicated to glass art and artifacts, you'll find upstate New York's only Smithsonian Affiliate, The Rockwell Museum. With special art trail events, like the annual Arts in Bloom and monthly Urban Arts Crawls, exceptional art galleries like West End Gallery and 60 East Gallery, and studios like Vitrix and Pullman paintings, as well as an abundance of live music at restaurants, breweries, Farm Markets, and weekly Music in the Park events, Corning and the Finger Lakes is an art-lovers dream.
