While I was with the Road Scholars in NY, we spent time at the
in Corning. What a fantastic place. The history of glass is something that I had never really thought about. The wealth of information you will find at this museum is quite interesting. So much to learn and see. Below are my photos and some tidbits from their website.
“The concept seems so simple. How much can you say about glass? Actually, quite a lot. Glass is a versatile, ancient material still being explored and understood by artists, scientists, and historians today. The story of glass is about art, history, culture, technology, science, craft, and design. And we tell that story at The Corning Museum of Glass.”
“The Corning Museum of Glass actively researches, publishes, and provides lectures about a broad range of glass topics.”
Another wonderful day with the Road Scholars. If you find yourself in upstate NY, I suggest you visit the museum. It is worth the trip.
