On a stop between the Museum of Glass in Tacoma, Washington, and the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C., the Wichita Art Museum presents Preston Singletary: Raven and the Box of Daylight. The unique exhibition combines extraordinary glass art within an immersive, multi-sensory environment. Art combines with storytelling and theatrical encounter.
