The Fellows of The Corning Museum of Glass are among the world’s leading glass collectors, scholars, dealers, and glassmakers. The objectives of this organization are (1) to disseminate knowl edge about the history and art of glassmaking and (2) to support the acquisitions program of the Museum’s Rakow Research Library. Admission to the fellowship is intended to recognize accomplishment, and is by invitation.
The Corning Museum of Glass Annual Report 2010 An educational institution dedicated to the history, art, and science of glass
Chartered by the Board of Regents of the University of the State of New York April 27, 1951 (6026) Accredited by the American Association of Museums 1973, 1986, 1999, 2010
The Year in Review
One of the highlights of 2010 was receiving reaccreditation by the American Association of Museums (AAM), the professional body that represents America’s museums. Fewer than 800 of the nation’s 17,500 museums are accredited. Accreditation by the AAM, which is widely recognized as the ultimate seal of approval for museums, is granted in recog nition of commitment to excellence, accountability, and the highest professional standards. Everything described in this Annual Report came under scrutiny, and we were proud (but not surprised) to be reaccredited. The Museum first applied for, and was granted, accreditation in 1973, and since then it has never lost this distinction. Our next review by the AAM is planned for 2023, by which time we will have been accredited for half a century. There was much to be proud of in 2010. Visitation increased by six percent over 2009, and during the year we welcomed some 387,000 guests. While individual and family visitation was slightly lower than in 2009, the number of tour groups grew by 25 percent. Gross revenue from sales in the GlassMarket and by food services was almost $6 million. Just over one-quarter of all individual and

family guests participated in the Make Your Own Glass Workshop, which for the first time generated revenue of $1 million. The marked increase in group tours prompted us to provide a temporary third venue for the Hot Glass Show, in the auditorium. We also began Hot Glass Show demonstrations on the third of Celebrity Cruises’ Solstice-class ships, and glass auctions on all three ships generated $58,000 for The Studio’s Glassmaking Scholarship Fund. We continued to enrich our collections. In addition to purchases of glass objects that range in date from the 17th century to the present day, we received, as a gift from the Ennion Society, The Cold Genius, an evocative work in stained glass, made by the American artist Judith Schaechter in 2009. Other highlights included a large reversepainted scene, created about 1750–1775, that shows the Singelgracht, one of Amsterdam’s many canals; a richly engraved tankard decorated by Johann Franz Trümper at the Altmünden glasshouse in Hesse-Kassel, Germany, in 1742; a wineglass with a stipple-engraved portrait executed in The Hague by David Wolff, one of the great late 18th-century masters of this meticulous technique; an imposing cameo glass lamp attributed to Thomas Webb and
Sons of Stourbridge, England, about 1880; and Forest Glass, made in 2009 by Katherine Gray, who used found tumblers to create treelike forms and reverse the age-old cycle of destroying forests to make glass, by using glass to make a forest. One of the pleasures of working at the Museum occurs when the collecting paths of curators and librarians intersect. Members of the Beilby family were celebrated 18th-century English enamelers who decorated numerous drinking glasses with coats of arms, landscapes, and other motifs. In 2010, the Rakow Research Library acquired, with funds contributed by the Fellows of the Museum, a pencil and wash landscape with trees and buildings beside a river, drawn about 1765 and signed by William Beilby. Seventy-four donors gave the Museum 305 objects for its glass collection, while no fewer than 278 individuals, galleries, and museums and other institutions enriched the holdings of the Rakow Library. During the year, we presented six temporary exhibitions. We extended the 2009 special exhibition, “Voices of Contemporary Glass: The Heineman Collection,” which was seen by more than half a million visitors. The 2010 special exhibition was “Medieval Glass for Popes, Princes, and Peasants,” an overview of glass vessels made in Europe between the end of the Roman Empire and the beginning of the Renaissance. The West Bridge was the venue for three smaller exhibitions. “Tiffany Treasures” brought together objects from the Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art at Cornell University, the Rockwell Museum of Western Art, and our own collection. “East Meets West: Cross-Cultural Influences in Glassmaking in the 18th and 19th Centuries,” drawn exclusively from our collection, explores influences in glassmaking that resulted from cultural exchange between western Europe and East Asia. A small exhibition in the “Masters of Studio Glass” series focused on the master engraver Jirˇí Harcuba. Meanwhile, in the Rakow Library, we exhibited “Drawings for American Stained Glass,” a selection from the Library’s collection of works of art on paper. Two events in 2010 that enhanced the stewardship of our collections were the opening of a new and enlarged conservation labora tory and the installation of compact shelving in the Rakow Library. The new shelving not only provides superior conditions for existing
holdings, but also more than triples the Library’s capacity for paper-based publications. This is excellent news because, although we have an ambitious program to digitize the Library’s holdings, we foresee an increase in the rate at which we collect paper, especially in the field of unique archival materials. The Museum produced a varied list of publications. For the first time, the Annual Report was published in electronic form (with printed copies available on demand). We also changed the contents of the Report to focus on programs. Instead of appearing exclusively in the Report, acquisitions of glass and library materials were described and illustrated in the first volume of Notable Acquisitions, which reviews 50 remarkable additions to our collections. Other publications on paper included two issues of our Members’ newsletter, The Gather; volume 52 of the Journal of Glass Studies; New Glass Review 31; Medieval Glass for Popes, Princes, and Peasants; and the first in a projected series of three volumes that will provide a comprehensive catalog of our Islamic glass collection. Medieval Glass accompanied our special exhibition, and Islamic Glass in The Corning Museum of Glass, Volume One docu ments our rich collection of scratch-engraved and wheel-cut glass of the early centuries of the Muslim era. At the same time, The Studio produced two DVDs in the “Glass Masters at Work” series: Vittorio Costantini and William Gudenrath,
Cartouche study containing landscape design, signed “WBeilby .” England, William Beilby (English, 1740–1819), about 1765. Watercolor, pen, and ink on paper. H. 15.5 cm, W. 19.9 cm (CMGL 115145). Purchased with funds from the Fellows of The Corning Museum of Glass.

both of which were created by the Academy Award–winning filmmaker Robin Lehman. Educational and public programs are designed for all age groups. Adult activities included the 49th annual Seminar on Glass and a one-day conference on medieval art and architecture. Among our youth programs were the Junior Curators (who mounted an exhibition titled “Dreaming with Open Eyes: Fantasy Meets Reality”), the Explainers program, and Fire Up Your Future, which focuses on career possibilities in museums and the arts. Scout programs continued to increase, and 12,500 schoolchildren visited the Museum to participate in “Glass: It’s Art, History, Science, and More!” Cooperation with area teachers was reinforced by two Evenings for Educators and the New York State Middle School Association Institute, which was hosted by the Museum. The Studio presented a full program of activities. An international faculty taught 61 intensive one- or two-week courses in fields as diverse as glassblowing, hot sculpting, flameworking, enameling, and beadmaking. The year’s activities included nine 10-week courses that consisted of one session each week, 30 weekend workshops, and nine oneday workshops. Seven artists from four countries received artist-in-residence awards, and scholarships were awarded to enable 50 artists and students to take classes at The Studio. Outreach takes many forms. In addition to deploying the Hot Glass Show on the third of Celebrity Cruises’ Solstice-class ships, the Museum presented its GlassLab at the Vitra Design Museum (Germany) during Art Basel.
Much closer to home, the Hot Glass Roadshow participated in Corning’s first GlassFest, which was attended by more than 10,000 people who watched our glassmaking demonstrations in Centerway Square. The Museum often borrows from institutions and collectors to assemble our special exhibitions. “Medieval Glass” is a case in point. Conversely, whenever Corning’s treasures would enhance an exhibition elsewhere without endangering their safety, we are happy to lend. In 2010, we lent objects to 17 insti tutions in the United States and abroad. We also lent an entire exhibition—the Richard Meitner show that occupied the West Bridge in 2009—to the Museum of Glass in Tacoma, Washington. Masterworks by Louis Comfort Tiffany (including the exquisite vase that appeared on the cover of the 2006 Annual Re port) were lent to the Musée du Luxembourg in Paris, the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, and the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts in Richmond. We made other loans to the American Museum of Natural History, the Australian National Maritime Museum, the Yale Center for British Art, and the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia. The Museum accomplishes its programs with support from many sources. Corning Incorporated continues to provide munificent support, as it has done from the day the Museum opened. Additional support comes from donors, foundations, the Fellows of the Mu seum (who help to secure acquisitions for the Rakow Library), Members, and our patron group, the Ennion Society (which supports glass acquisitions and educational activities). At the annual dinner of the Ennion Society, a sale of glass objects raised almost $16,000 for the Scholarship and Artist-in-Residence Fund at The Studio. Grants in 2010 included $36,890 from the New York State Council on the Arts and $12,500 from the F. M. Kirby Foundation. We acknowledge this support with gratitude; without it, we would not be reporting many of the successes, collective and individual, that are listed in this Annual Report. We are looking forward to 2011, when we will celebrate the Museum’s 60th birthday on May 19 with a variety of special programs and activities. David Whitehouse Executive Director

Development The Corning Museum of Glass gratefully acknowledges the many donors, Members, foundations, and corporate contributors that supported its initiatives in 2010. Thirteen new individuals and couples joined the Museum’s patron group, the Ennion Society. The highlight of the year was the annual Ennion Society dinner, held on October 13 in the Museum’s auditorium, which presented a princely celebration of medieval glass. One hundred fifty-seven members of the Society and guests attended, and they enjoyed dining in a medieval setting. The evening was graciously hosted by James B. Flaws, chairman of the Museum’s Board of Trustees, and his wife, Marcia D. Weber. A sale of glass objects raised nearly $16,000 for The Studio’s Scholarship and Artist-in-Residence Fund. Additional Ennion Society events in 2010 included private dinner receptions—at the homes of Society members—for “Meet the Artist” lecturers Dante Marioni, Jirˇí Harcuba, and April Surgent; a private tour of our special exhibition, “Medieval Glass for Popes, Princes, and Peasants,” led by David Whitehouse; and a reception for the Rakow Commission by Luke Jerram, which included the unveiling of two flameworked and blown glass sculptures, Smallpox Virus and HIV (Human Immunode ficiency Virus), from his “Glass Microbiology” series. Gifts given by members of the Ennion So ciety during the year were used to add an impressive work by the American artist Judith Schaechter to the Museum’s collection. The acquisition of this object, a stained glass panel titled The Cold Genius, was voted upon by members of the Directors’, Curators’, Sus tainers, and Collectors Circles of the Society. In December, Ennion Society members were invited to preview our Holiday Open House glass sale. The Studio Holiday Open House weekend raised almost $40,000 for The Studio’s Scholarship and Artist-in-Residence Fund. Proceeds from glass auctions on Celebrity Cruises’ Solstice-class ships added $58,000 to the Museum’s Glassmaking Scholarship Fund. Grants in 2010 included $36,890 from the New York State Council on the Arts; $12,500 from the F. M. Kirby Foundation, which helped us to purchase an 18th-century armorial tumbler enameled by members of
the Beilby family; $3,000 from the Samuel H. Kress Foundation to allow Dr. O. Akin Ige, a professor and glass researcher from Nigeria, to attend the interim meeting of the International Council of Museums’ Committee for Conservation working group, held at the Museum in October; and $3,500 from The Triangle Fund, which supported The Studio’s cooperative glassblowing and flameworking program with the Corning–Painted Post High School Learning Center. The Membership Department welcomed 1,000 new Members in 2010. About 270 Members attended the opening of our special exhibition, “Medieval Glass for Popes, Princes, and Peasants.”
