Authentic, Un-Plugged Playtime at The Rockwell in Corning

[smartslider2 slider=”64″]

Open every day, The Rockwell Museum welcomes the young and the young-at-heart to explore art. From Art Hunts to the upcoming KIDS ROCKWELL Art Lab, The Rockwell is designed to make art accessible to kids, and inspire an appreciation for art at a young age.

Kids love our activities, and parents become gallery experts to guide their families through the story of art throughout America. Young museum-goers will adore the opportunity to explore on their own.

Special Thanks

The Family Exploration Studio is made possible in part by LeChase Construction Services, LLC. LeChase Construction, LLC

The Rockwell Museum received a very generous gift from William H. Goodrich, President and Chief Executive Officer on behalf of LeChase Construction, to upgrade the Family Exploration Studio. New furniture and fixtures were provided by LeChase in order to offer an enhanced educational experience. A team from LeChase repainted; replaced the carpeting with new; and provided new interpretive signage.

The Studio supports the larger educational vision of The Rockwell; to be a leader in providing authentic art and cultural education experiences. The Rockwell is deeply appreciative of this gift from Mr. Goodrich and LeChase Construction.
