There are only a few weeks left to visit the Museum of Glass for the “Preston Singletary: Raven and the Box of Daylight” traveling exhibition before it closes. This dynamic exhibit tells the Tlingit story of Raven and his transformation of the world—bringing light to people via the stars, moon, and sun.

This traveling exhibition features a unique combination of artwork, storytelling, and encounter, where the Tlingit story unfolds during the visitor’s experience.

Raven and the Box of Daylight is currently on view at the Museum of Glass until September 2nd, 2019 and will then travel to the Wichita Art Museum with the exhibit opening in February 2020.
