Thank you to everyone who has come out to our first two events this Fall! Look for pictures and summaries from our Fall events so far, coming soon!
In an effort to avoid conflicts with all of the exciting Armenia-related events taking place around New York City this Fall (and there are more than usual, with the exciting Armenia! exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art), the Zohrab Information Center has made two changes to the Fall Schedule: Dr. Sylvie Merian’s talk will be moved to Tuesday, November 13 at 7 PM and Dr. Christina Maranci’s talk will begin a little earlier than normal, at 5:30 PM on Friday, November 2. Further details of both presentations can be found below.
The Zohrab Information Center encourages everyone to take advantage of all the events, including the two events which led to these schedule changes:
On Tuesday, October 23 at 6 PM, Dr. Helen Evans, curator of the incredible Armenia! exhibit, will be giving the annual “Orthodoxy in America” Lecture organized by the Orthodox Christian Studies Center at Fordham University. Details of the event can be found here: “Presenting Byzantium in the Modern World.”
On Friday, November 2 at 7 PM, in conjunction with the Armenia! exhibition, the Metropolitan Museum of Art is hosting a concert, “The Sound of Stone.” Our event that night is starting early to allow interested participants the chance to get to the Met in time for the show.
