Virtual Journeys into CMoG's Collection: Thoughts from a Librarian

This recurring blog series will feature virtual gallery walks with staff members from The Corning Museum of Glass. Everyone at our Museum interacts with the collection in different ways depending on the job they do and the perspective they bring. Hear from fascinating people and learn about their favorite objects as they provide a virtual peek at some of the treasures in our collectionand make plans to come see them in person when we reopen! This next comes from Regan Brumagen, associate librarian, public services, at The Rakow Research Library.

When I first came to The Corning Museum of Glass over a decade ago, I was familiar with just one glass artistbingo, it was Dale Chihuly. It wasnt long after I arrived, however, that I began to learn about a local glass luminary named Frederick Carder.

I first encountered his name when I was looking for a house. The realtor told me the house I was considering was in the Carder school district. Then on my introductory tour of the Museum, my guide took me into the Carder Gallery, filled with Carders colorful, elegantly shaped glass. As a reference librarian at The Rakow Research Library, over the years I have been able to research and learn more about the fascinating person behind this glass and his connections with the Corning community.

Exploring Carders story has led me to discover some of my favorite library objects as well.
