The Rockwell Museum of Western Art

The next stop on our trip to NY was the Rockwell Museum of Western Art. We were going to go to the Rockwell and the Corning glass museum in one day, but we went to Watkins Glen first and didn’t have enough time to do both museums after that. The Corning Glass museum is BIG! And you need  at least half a day to see it all and check out some of the live glass blowing shows.

The Rockwell museum was awesome, and a great way to finish the day after all the walking and hiking at the gorge 🙂 The artifacts, art, and sculptures were beautiful. Western culture and history has always interested me, and this museum did not disappoint!

 I think my favorite part of the museum is the soapstone carvings! Although the pottery is a very close second. 🙂

About kittyisnotamused

I am an eclectic crafter whose hobbies currently include knitting, crochet, making journals, cooking, and quilting, although I have also been addicted to jewelry making, scrapbooking, sewing, and many others. My passion for creating runs a wide gamut and jumps back and forth from new hobbies to old often. I live with my hubby and our 3 pets: 1 grown puppy with the attention span of a goldfish, and 2 lazy chubby kitties. Kitties who, despite my best efforts to gain their enthusiasm, show no interest in what I'm working on except to lay on whatever it is occasionally. The hubby's reactions are better, which is why he gets many handmade items and the kitties only a few, but his reactions are usually confused smiles and nods with "thats great sweety!" The dog shows the most enthusiasm but mostly that translates into her trying to snot and eat whatever I am showing to her... I suppose thats just life tho :) Thanks for stopping in, feel free to leave a comment!
