Preston Singletary: Raven and the Box of Daylight Opening Party

6:30-8:30p , February 1, 2020 | Wichita Art Museum

The Wichita Art Museum presents a dynamic, theatrical gallery experience--one that combines glass art, film projection, sound, and storytelling. As visitors progress through each scene more beautiful and arresting than the next, they will discover the Pacific Northwest Tlingit story of Raven, the white bird in darkness that brings light to the world. Museum of Glass commissioned Seattle-based artist and internationally regarded Preston Singletary to create this unique staging of the Native American foundational story of Raven.
