May 2300°

May 23, 2019

Is there any better way to kick off GlassFest weekend than with a high-energy, can’t-miss 2300°? We’ll see you at the Museum as we open what is sure to be a fantastic GlassFest weekend.

At 2300°, hot glass gets interesting—and so do things at The Corning Museum of Glass. Enjoy glassmaking demonstrations, live music, and great food and drink. Free and open to the public. Free shuttle bus service from the Museum’s I-86 parking lot is available.

Live glassmaking

Get ready to warm things up in a major way. Live glassmaking is always a key element of any 2300°. In May, watch as glassblower Annette Sheppard, a contestant on Blown Away, creates something new with the help of the Hot Glass Demo Team in the Amphitheater Hot Shop. Can't make it to 2300°? Catch the live stream and watch from your computer. Watch on or The Corning Museum of Glass Facebook page when the event is live.

Live music

What would a 2300° be without rockin’ music? In May pick your poison—immerse yourself in the progressive pop sounds of Molehill, performing in the Auditorium, or dance to the sounds of Rochester-based cover band Handsome Young Ladies on the Courtyard Stage. Either way, you are in for musical treats!

Blown Away

See the new display, Blown Away: Glassmaking Comes to Netflix, which tells the story of how the Museum found its way into the global spotlight. See a behind-the-scenes documentary and glass objects created on the show. (On view in the Amphitheater Hot Shop starting May 23). Stick around after 2300° for a special panel discussion with creators, glassmakers, and the host of Blown Away, from 8 to 9 pm.
