In-Kind Sponsor - The Rockwell Museum
The Rockwell is home to an incredible collection of art. Diverse, complex, and engaging, this collection serves as our primary source of inspiration for everything we do in the community, in local schools, and with visitors from around the world.
The core of our collection was gifted by Bob and Hertha Rockwell, local business owners who amassed an incredible collection of American art and artifacts.
The Rockwells had keen eyes for art and exquisite taste. They owned a department store in the area, and used their store as a venue to display their remarkable collection of American art and artifacts, Carder Steuben glass, classic firearms, and antique toys.
Their collection quickly outgrew their department store. In 1974, the Rockwells and a group of executives from Corning Glass Works (now Corning Incorporated) began working together to turn the collection into a museum for the benefit of the Corning, NY community. The Rockwells would donate their collection, and the company and the community would support the museum moving forward.
