Current & Upcoming Artist Residencies

Current & Upcoming Artist Residencies

The Studio’s Residency programs – Artist-in-Residence at The Studio, David Whitehouse Artist Residency for Research, and Specialty Glass Residency – bring artists from around the world to Corning. The artists spend up to a month at The Studio trying new techniques in glass or enhancing their current work, or using the Museum’s vast resources to inspire and inform their practice.

Most Residents provide public lectures, either Lunchtime Lectures or Behind the Glass, about their work. All lectures are free; no reservations are required.

Residency programs at The Studio of The Corning Museum of Glass welcome six to 10 artists each year.
