Located in the very heart of Corning in the historic 1893 former city hall, the Rockwell Museum represents "Art About America -- the people, land and ideas that shape America through the eyes of American artists." The collection focuses on the inspirational story of the great migration West.
Robert and Hertha Rockwell's private collection of American art and artifacts, Carder Steuben glass, classic firearms, and antique toys has grown to include contemporary Native American art, traditional bronze sculptures, landscape paintings, and other works that embody America. The Museum holds some notable works by iconic American artists including Albert Bierstadt, Andy Warhol, Thomas Moran, and especially significant paintings and bronzes by Frederic Remington and Charles Russell.
