Tuesday, 18th November, we hosted an #ArtTalk with the Corning Museum of Glass about the use of glass in contemporary art and design.
The Corning Museum of Glass holds the world’s most important collection of glass, spanning 35 centuries. As part of its mission, the museum actively supports, collaborates with, and collects work by contemporary artists and designers work with in glass.
In 2006, the museum launched GlassLab, a design program that introduces designers to the material of glass through rapid prototyping session. In March 2015, the museum will open a new gallery that will be the largest space anywhere dedicated to the presentation of contemporary art and design in glass.

The Moving Image Collection at George Eastman House in Rochester, NY, is one of the major moving image archives in the United States. In this Art Talk, get a glimpse into the life of a film archivist as members of Eastman House’s Moving Image Department will be discussing the lesser known films of American cinema: films that exist but have fallen out of the public eye. Often called ‘orphan films,’ these films tend to be left out of the spotlight for more well-known titles made in Hollywood. What causes this to happen includes such factors as: studio closings, unknown copyright holders, non-famous actors, etc. Are films made today at risk to this type of obscurity? Using one film in particular to highlight this case: The Sign of the Cucumber (1917), they will explain what this film is about, who made it, the stars and what is being done to keep it in the public eye.
