Current Artists-in-Residence

Current Artists-in-Residence

The Studio’s Artist-in-Residence program brings artists from around the world to Corning. The artists spend a month at The Studio, trying new techniques in glass, or enhancing their current work, while using the immense resources of the world’s leading glass museum.

All Artists-in-Residence provide public lectures, called Lunchtime Lectures, about their work. The lectures are held at 12:00 pm in The Studio Lecture Room. No reservations are required; admission is free.

The Artists-in-Residence program at The Studio of The Corning Museum of Glass welcomes six to ten artists each year.
