The Studio’s Artist-in-Residence program brings artists from around the world to Corning. The artists spend a month at The Studio, exploring new directions in glass art, or expanding on their current bodies of work, while using the immense resources of the world’s leading glass museum. At the end of the residency, each artist gives a presentation about his or her work. This is a free event held in The Studio Lecture Room and open to the public.
