Posted: Jan 11, 2018 07:22 PM EST CORNING, N.Y. (18 NEWS) – The Rockwell Museum building turns 125 years old this year and it’s giving locals a chance to create their own art inside.  The building has had a long life as a community center and for the anniversary, the museum is giving the community a chance to program the space.

The event at the museum, called Bare Bones Cafe, will provide the space but with limited equipment, so it’s up to the artists to bring it to life. They also have to be accepted to perform.  Any type of artist or performer is invited to submit their proposal.  “If you want to do acoustic music, or a comedy routine, or an artist demo, or a workshop, or a master class, or anything you can think of, maybe something you’ve been working on that you want to experiment with in kind of a small setting, we’re really open to any kind of art or artistic expression or performance,” Willa Vogel, the Rockwell’s marketing manager, said.  The building served many purposes since 1893 from the old City Hall to even housing the fire station.
