The Rockwell Museum is an American art museum in Corning, New York. It is located in the city's former city hall building, which was built in 1893. The museum was founded in 1974 by a collaboration between Bob and Hertha Rockwell, who donated their art collection to the museum, and executives of what is now called Corning Glass Works. The collection reflects American values, spirit and character. It includes works by Albert Bierstadt, Andy Warhol, Thomas Moran, Alfred Jacob Miller, and contemporary Native American artists.
