Corning Museum of Glass

Corning, New York: At The Corning Museum of Glass, glass isn't just for looking at or looking through. At our Museum, you can explore, research, touch, work with, and interact with glass. The Corning Museum of Glass is where the world—from serious scholars to those simply interested in discovering—turns to learn more about the art, history, craft, or technology of this incredible material.

The Modern Glass gallery shows one-of-a-kind and limited production art glass vessels, stained glass, furniture, lighting, and decorative objects and accessories from about 1880 to 1960. In the permanent collection is a Tiffany Studios stained glass window "Hudson River Landscape." The window depicts the Hudson River landscape as seen from Rochroane’s hilltop location. The river vista is framed by hollyhocks, clematis, and trumpet vines. By 1970, when Rochroane was donated to the Roman Catholic Church, most of the decorations and furnishings, including this window, had been removed and sold.
