The Museum of the Bible in Washington will celebrate Armenia on January 29.
The Museum intends to explore the Christian tradition, culture, and history of the Armenian people. The web page of the museum states: “Armenians have one of the richest biblical histories and cultures in the world. The Armenian highlands include the traditional resting place of Noah’s ark and the garden of Eden.”
The celebration day will include lunch, remarks from academics, and the participation of local Armenian artists. Armenian silk scarves, jewelry, art, hand-made soap, edibles, and souvenirs will be featured. Another Digital exhibition titled Ancient Faith: The Churches of Nagorno-Karabakh will explore the sacred spaces, Christian culture, and stories of the people who live and worship in Nagorno-Karabakh.
Students from St. Mary Shnorhali School will present a selection of Armenian dances and poetry. Hye Choral Group will perform Armenian songs in Armenian, with a short presentation of their meaning afterward.
Closing remarks will be delivered by Armenia’s Ambassador to the United States, Lilit Makunts.
