01.12.2017

The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, one of the world's prestigious cultural centers, will host an exclusive exhibition presenting the historical and cultural heritage of the Armenian people in the 4th-17th centuries. The opening of the exhibition is scheduled for Armenia's Independence Day on September 21, 2018.

The exhibition will mainly feature samples from the Museum of the Mother See of Holy Etchmiadzin, the Mesrop Mashtots Institute of Ancient Manuscripts-Matenadaran and the History Museum, certain treasures of Armenian medieval culture kept at the St. Hakobyants Armenian Church of Jerusalem, the Catholicosate of the Great House of Cilicia and the Mekhitarist Congregation, and the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation and certain non-Armenian sources will provide samples.

Facilitator of the Byzantine Section of the Department of Medieval Arts and Monasteries of the Metropolitan Museum of Art Helen Evans stated that this is an exclusive opportunity to present the historical and cultural heritage of a nation bearing one of the world's ancient cultures through a modern method. "We hope this exhibition makes Armenians feel proud to see how Armenia is properly presented. At the same time, we expect to make Armenian culture more recognized and accepted as a presentable part of world arts," she said, adding that it was an honor to be involved in organizing the exhibition.
