Join us for a public talk with artist Dan Friday, who is currently featured in the exhibition Clearly Indigenous: Native Visions Reimagined in Glass. Learn how Friday fuses the traditions of his Lummi (Coast Salish) heritage with his contemporary approaches to glass art. To Friday, “Glass is a medium that will survive millennia, and a great way to tell a story to future generations. It is, metaphorically, a contemporary painting on the cave wall.” 

*Please note: Museum lectures will take place in Gallery 105 during the renovation of the lower level.   

Parking is limited. Please arrive early or consider using a rideshare service. If museum parking lots are full, consider offsite parking in Eden Park and throughout Mount Adams.
