Pride At The Museum

  • Our new Self-guided Pride Tour features queer artists in The Rockwell’s collection.
  • Free Rainbow Mosaic Suncatcher Art-On-The-Go kits are available in The Museum Store starting June 1. The project was created by local artist, Victoria Holton and is designed for children ages 5 – 12. While supplies last.
  • Rainbow Social Media Challenge – Take a selfie during your Rockwell Museum experience inspired by the colors of the rainbow and share on social media using #RockwellMuseum, #Rainbow and #CorningPride. Choose an artwork that predominately features colors that inspire or represent you and how you feel. Once you post the image to your feed with the hashtags, click on them to see a rainbow wall of images! Add a caption about why the colors inspired you!
