It is my distinct pleasure to inform you that my colleague from California, Mr. Hratch Kozibeyokian will present an exhibit of antique Armenian rugs augmented by his lecture in New York City. The theme of this event is entitled Armenian Carpets: The Genesis – An Illuminating Recount and an Exhibit of Select Armenian Historical Carpets; and, it will take place at the Armenian Society of New York, at Little Neck, NY, on September 16, at 9:00 p.m.
Mr. Kozibeyokian, currently the president of the Armenian Rug Society, had launched a course specifically focused on the history of traditional Armenian rugs within the Armenian Studies program at the California State University. As the organizer of countless exhibitions and an authoritative lecturer on the subject, he was invited to the White House to present the display of President Calvin Coolidge's Armenian Orphan Rug.
Please see the accompanying flyer for details, and please forward it to your friends who may be interested in attending this captivating function.
Mr. Kozibeyokian’s presentation will help us once again to realize and appreciate the significance of the Armenian rug-weaving tradition to the cumulative culture of the world.
Thank you very much for your time and attention.
