In the heart of Corning, NY exists The Rockwell Museum, a world class museum of western art.  One wouldn't imagine a small town in Finger Lakes region of Upstate New York to host such a museum, but it's just one of many pleasant surprises to be found in Corning.  Located in Corning's Gaffer District right off of historic Market Street, the museum is an icon soaring high above the surrounding buildings.  Filled with a core collection from the original donations by the Rockwell family, the museum houses an amazing permanent and revolving exhibition of artwork.  Additionally it provides invaluable educational programming to local youth.

The Rockwell Museum recently underwent a rebranding, changing their logo and updating their website, and after the time I've spent here in Corning, I realized I didn't have any photos of their amazing building.  The brick, architecture facade stood in stark contrast to the beautiful summer day with light, white clouds floating lazily through the crisp, clean air.  With power lines and traffic lights straddling the neighboring streets, it's difficult to get a wide angle photograph that takes in the whole building.  The street corner in the newly finishing transportation center offers the best, unobstructed view.  I hope you enjoy.
