Building on a tradition of collaboration, The Rockwell Museum and Corning Museum of Glass are pleased to once again team up to host a contemporary artist in Corning. This year we welcome multidisciplinary artist Elaine Ng, who will be creating a site-specific installation at The Rockwell as part of the Antigravity Project. This annual commission is coupled with a week-long guest appearance in the Corning Museum of Glass Amphitheater Hot Shop where she’ll work collaboratively with the gaffers to realize her designs in glass.
Ng will create a site-specific installation in The Rockwell’s rotunda entryway as a response to the architecture of that historic building. Elaine Ng’s Antigravity Project will be on view through February of 2021. Corning Museum of Glass members that attend the event are invited to visit The Rockwell for free that day to see Ng’s unique installation.
Please note that the artist will take lunch breaks each day, so times may vary.
