Contemporary Glass: Research Techniques: Images

Tips for researching contemporary glass artists, history, and works

Contemporary Glass - Images

The CMoG Collection Browser allows you to search for, view high-quality photographs of, and learn more about glass objects in the Museum's collection. In addition to images and information, the Collection Browser will also return library records related to your search terms. While it can be useful to view images of glass objects and library records together in the same place, we recommend that you search for materials held by the Rakow library through the library's search and discovery tool, as it will return results more representative of the non-glass but glass-related resources the library has access to.

Explore more than 6,000 glass objects from multiple museum collections, including more than 2,000 images of objects at the Corning Museum of Glass. You can browse by institution or artist.

CMoG Images Policy

The Museum makes available images, text and data on the Museum and its collections to scholars, students and the general public for personal, non-commercial, educational and academic purposes or for fair use as defined in the U.S. copyright laws.

Fair use with our contemporary objects may depend on our agreement with the artist, so check with the museum's Rights and Reproduction team if you're interested in publishing images.

Any commercial reproduction or publication requires a prior written license signed by the Museum's Department of Rights and Reproductions.

Our policy is available on the website. If you have questions, we have a team – including library members – who make prompt decisions about fair use. Generally, there is no charge for images.
