Crystal City Gallery at CMoG
2018 marks the 150th anniversary of glassmaking in Corning. In celebration, CMOG has reinstalled the Crystal City Gallery. This refresh shares the story of how Corning became one of the premier centers for glass cutting in the United States.
At the same time Corning Glass Works was becoming established in Corning, a growing trend in American luxury glass developedmasterfully cut, high-quality lead glass tableware we know today as brilliant cut glass. Corning, New York, became the leading center for this style of glass. Dozens of new cutting firms were started, achieving international recognition for their inventive designs. An influx of talented glassmakers from Europe and America spurred the growth of the city and region, and the Crystal City was born.
The renovated Crystal City Gallery features iconic objects from the Museums collection of cut and engraved glass as well as selected private loans. Together with updated LED lighting, digital displays, and a newly commissioned contemporary glass sculpture featuring the topography of Corning, the refreshed Crystal City Gallery connects people to the stories about Cornings origins as a center for glass with a focus on the history and innovations that led to its emergence as the Crystal City.
Featured objects in the Gallery can be seen here: https://www.cmog.org/collection/galleries/crystal-city
