The Corning Museum of Glass has announced the dates and times of ports of call for its four-month waterway tour known as "GlassBarge," a project which commemorates both the 1868 relocation of the Brooklyn Flint Glass Company from Brooklyn to Corning, New York and the last 150 years of glassmaking in Corning. The summer tour will bring glass-blowing demonstrations along the same route that the Brooklyn Flint Glass Company took through the Hudson River and Erie Canal. The company shipped its glass blowing equipment via the New York Waterways to Corning, where it eventually became the corporation known as Corning, Inc., which founded the museum in 1951. To honor this pivotal relocation, CMoG conceived of and built a 30-by-80-foot barge equipped with patented all-electric glassblowing equipment meant to bring the history of glass out of the museum and into the towns along New York State canals and rivers. Furthermore, the tour, which will kick-off on May 17 at Brooklyn Bridge Park (in conjunction with UrbanGlass, which publishes the Hot Sheet), is meant to honor the continued importance that waterways have on New York’s culture, communities, and industries. After its start in Brooklyn, the tour will conclude on land in Corning on September 22nd with a community-wide celebration. Before its end though, the tour will be hitting Poughkeepsie, Albany, Buffalo, and Seneca Falls, among other cities throughout the summer. The full list and accompanying dates are below.
