As many of our cultural institutions shut their physical doors to flatten the curve, they recognize that they can still fulfill their critical mission of being a place for respite and inspiration. The Corning Museum of Glass, the world’s foremost authority on glass, is now offering a wide collection of online resources through a series of virtual tours, videos, and interactives.
For those missing the physical gallery space, take a virtual tour through Google Arts & Culture of the airy Contemporary Art & Design Wing or get lost in the 35 Centuries of Glass galleries. The digital collection from the Rakow Research Library, also features educational materials, including everything from Blaschka design drawings to glass recipe books. Lastly, join the engaging You Design It: We Make It demos as glassmakers turn audience-submitted drawings into beautiful works of art. Here, live stream demos of past Guest Artists who have worked in the Amphitheater Hot Shop are also offered.
