Visit the Wichita Art Museum for the opening of "Raven and the Box of Daylight", opening February 2020. 

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 "Raven and the Box of Daylight", the unique solo 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. Raven leads visitors on a fantastical journey through the transformation of darkness into light.

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 coastal Pacific Northwest soundscapes. Singletary’s art creates a theatrical atmosphere in which his striking glass pieces enhance the narrative of Raven and the Box of Daylight.

Additonal venues include the National Museum of the American Indian - Smithsonian, Washington, DC. Fall 2020 and the Chrysler Museum of Art, Norfolk, VA. Fall 2021. Read more about the story behind Raven and the Box of Daylight in this article by The Seattle Times: "There are Many Versions of the Tlingit ‘Raven’ Story, but its Truth and Hopeful Message are Universal".
