Raven and the Box of Daylight features the astounding glass art of Preston Singletary. The exhibition explores the Tlingit story of Raven and how the bird-spirit brings light to the world. Singletarys remarkable works, more than 50 glass sculptures including a monumental glass canoe, glass paddles, and glass river, are joined by audio and video elements to create a dynamic, multi-sensory environment. The exhibition takes visitors on an experiential journey following the transformation of darkness into light.

Singletary is one of Americas premier glass artists. He is Tlingit, a Pacific Northwest Native American tribe, and he draws heavily on Native American art and themes in his work. Raven and the Box of Daylight is organized by the Museum of Glass, Tacoma, Washington.
