TAM Docents: Museum of Glass Opportunity

Hello Docents-

I wanted to make sure that you know about the Preston Singletary exhibition opening at MOG this weekend (free admission!) because his name will come up again this fall tied in with the Feddersen exhibition.

Take care,

In celebration of our new exhibition, Preston Singletary: Echoes, Fire, and Shadows , MOG is offering FREE admission Saturday and Sunday, July 11 and 12, 2009.

"Preston Singletary's work combines two of the region's most significant cultural influences— Northwest Native American art and Studio glass," states director Timothy Close. "We want all members of the community to be able to celebrate the opening of this landmark exhibition."

A member of the Tlingit tribe, Preston Singletary is recognized internationally for his work which transforms the symbols, patterns and legends of his Tlingit heritage into glass, creating a distinctive and powerful body of work. Learn more »
