#AskACurator Day is Wednesday Sept 16

Ask us anything! The Corning Museum of Glass is joining more than 500 museums around the world for #AskACurator Day on Twitter on Wednesday, September 16.

The curatorial team will be answering questions all day long. Ask the curators questions about their jobs, our collections, exhibitions, or anything else during this live Twitter Q&A. Just tweet your question to @corningmuseum using the hashtag #AskACurator.
