Ongoing Exhibitions

Armenian Medieval Churches and Monasteries

2017 09 19 – 2017 10 19

The photo exhibition of Armenian medieval churches in both modern day Armenia and in the historic home of Armenian people offers a brief and precious glimpse into the mysterious world of Armenian spirituality. Weather-beaten, dilapidated buildings, mossy cross-stones on a mountainous plateau, and sometimes a colorful burst of young people in stylish clothes in front of an ancient monastery. The visual images can be seen as an almost tangible symbol of past and present, illustrating the rich historical and spiritual heritage of Armenia, the first Christian state in the world.
