Some 54 works by internationally renowned glass artist Preston Singletary (Tlingit) illustrate the artist's evolution over the past two decades. Singletary's contemporary glass interpretations of Tlingit myths and legends are realized through a complex combination of artistic techniques and traditional forms. Highlights include Clan House, a monumental glass sculpture that references the interior of a Tlinglit longhouse, and a large-scale wall mural created by the artist especially for this installation. This exhibition is the first mid-career survey of Singletary's works.
