The Corning Museum of Glass on Instagram

The Corning Museum of Glass has an Instagram! As a part of the museum’s outreach, the Corning Museum of Glass (based in the U.S.A. in Corning, New York) engages the public through various social media platforms (in this instance, Instagram) in order to highlight works from ongoing exhibitions. The museum’s Instagram also features documents, records or objects from the Rakow Library, which is the museum’s Special Collections and Archives department, as well as upcoming, ongoing, or past events.

Highlights of the Instagram include:
