The Raven is an ongoing series of interviews and essays with contemporary artists and artwork. Its title is inspired by readings about Native American and other cultures’ mythologies and the belief that the raven symbolized the medicine bird of its society and that it is a bird of strength and wisdom. The column focuses on artists as storytellers of strength and wisdom and specifically investigates their processes and the behind the scenes of how they make their work and who they are. Sarah Walko is the writer of The Raven and also Executive Director of Triangle Arts Association, a fiction and nonfiction writer, artist and contributing writer to Hyperallergic art blog.
