Raven and the Box of Daylight
Wichita Art Museum
Opens February 1st and on view through August 30th, 2020
 

Visit the Wichita Art Museum for the opening of "Preston Singletary: Raven and the Box of Daylight", the unique traveling exhibition by Preston Singletary and organized by the Museum of Glass, which tells the Tlingit origin story of Raven and his transformation of the world—bringing light to people via the stars, moon, and sun.
 
 
The story unfolds as visitors move through the exhibition’s four environments, while listening to recordings of storytellers paired with layers of original music and soundscapes. Singletary’s art creates a theatrical atmosphere in which his striking glass pieces enhance the narrative of Raven and the Box of Daylight.
