Our ART LOVERS’ tours are organized and sponsored by the Gallery Council to benefit MAG and open to all interested travelers.

The Tiffany Mosaics at CMOG and Hudson River School artists at Arnot Museum

Thursday, October 12, 2017
Proposed Itinerary:

  • View the Tiffany Mosaics, presented by the Corning Museum of Glass (CMOG) in conjunction with the Neustadt Collection of Tiffany Glass. This is a first-of-its-kind pairing and expo.
  • While at the CMOG, sit and watch the gaffers (glass blowers) in the new Hot Shop.
  • Also while at the CMOG, you will be able to take a walk through the new Contemporary Art + Design Wing. In a word…stunning.
  • And of course you will have time to browse the CMOG’s amazing gift shop. Remember, the holidays are just a few short weeks away.
  • Enjoy a leisurely lunch at Tony R’s Restaurant, Corning, N.Y.
  • View the unsurpassed rendered beauty of the Hudson River School Artists at the Arnot Museum in Elmira, New York.
  • Be amazed at the Arnot’s original 1833 showcase. Its architecture is truly extraordinary.

As a bonus, you will be able to enjoy the beautiful autumn colors as we travel through the Fingers Lakes area and the beautiful Southern Tier of New York State!
