“To know the crow is to know ourselves,” writes John Marzluff, award-winning author of In the Company of Crows and Ravens. The strange familiarity of crows and ravens has intrigued humans for centuries, inspiring mythic interpretation, artistic expression, and scientific inquiry.   “Crow/Raven: Magic and Mystery” brings together these human responses to crows through two art exhibitions, artist talks, and public lectures. The series runs May 30 through July 12 at the artEAST Art Center and Blakely Hall in the Issaquah Highlands.  Join us for these events:
