CORNING, N.Y. (September 14, 2016) The Rockwell Museum once again launches a series of programs and arts events, free to regional youths and their families. The Rockwell believes in reaching all audiences in meaningful ways through a commitment to authentic educational and cultural experiences. That’s why The Rockwell designs a culture-centric events calendar specific to families in our region.

Amy Ruza, Education Programs Coordinator, says, “The Rockwell’s education team prides itself on providing authentic, unplugged playtime for families. That said, I have seen some Pokémon hiding in the galleries. We encourage you to come for both!”

Mark your calendar to not miss any of these unique, unplugged experiences at The Rockwell Museum in Corning. Kids 17 and under are always free – local residents always enjoy half-off admission prices. Additional details for all events can be found at http://rockwellmuseum.org/events
