Guest Artist: Virgil Ortiz

The Rockwell Museum and The Corning Museum of Glass collaborated to bring internationally renowned artist Virgil Ortiz to Corning, NY for an opportunity to work in a new medium--glass. From Cochiti Pueblo, New Mexico, Ortiz strives to use art to blend historic events with futuristic elements in provocative and edgy designs to ignite contemporary interest in the stories of his Pueblo culture. Ortiz worked with the Museum's team to experiment with new ideas in glass, furthering his well-known Pueblo Revolt series. Ceramicist, fashion designer and graphic artist, Ortiz’s work is part of The Rockwell Museum collection. Music: SpaceX by Symbiants (2015).
