Rockwell Museum To Unveil New Interactive Family Studio

Recommended Posts

The Rockwell Museum announces there will be one more way for families to engage with art, and it’s a big one!

KIDS ROCKWELL Art Lab is a new interactive family studio, located just around the corner from the Museum at 36 East Market Street in Corning, NY. The Grand Opening will be on Wednesday, October 10, 2018 from 4pm – 6pm. It is free and open to the public. Young art explorers will love getting creative with hands-on projects; families will love the opportunity for authentic, unplugged playtime in a relaxed, drop-in environment.

For years, The Rockwell has been expanding its presence in the Corning community through many programs, including the Alley Art Project, bringing art to the streets. Now, the new KIDS ROCKWELL Art Lab is a physical extension to The Rockwell Museum’s campus designed specifically for kids and families. Tickets include access to both Rockwell locations for one price – and kids/teens 17 and under are always free! Start your Rockwell experience at either location. 

More than a museum, visitors to The Rockwell explore art about the American experience. Activity stations at KIDS ROCKWELL Art Lab are all inspired by the artwork and architecture of The Rockwell, with the goal of making art accessible to kids and inspiring an appreciation for art at a young age.

As The Rockwell celebrates the 125th Anniversary of its home in Corning’s Old City Hall, many of the activities are inspired by the architecture of the historic building. This fall, kids can construct an entire neighborhood in the free-form Cardboard City and design their own tin ceiling tiles - giant magnet puzzles, light-table games and more make KIDS ROCKWELL Art Lab the perfect family destination. Activity stations refresh throughout the year as the ever-evolving Rockwell Museum presents new and exciting themes and exhibitions so families can visit again and again.

Around the corner at The Rockwell, families will still find many of the activities they have grown to know and love including Art Hunts, I-Spy games and new touch stations scattered throughout The Rockwell’s galleries.
