As part of our ongoing exhibit, “Heartstrings: Embracing Armenian Needlelace, Embroidery and Rugs”, the Lynn Museum is delighted to welcome collector Raffi Manjikian, for a special one day showing of rare, antique Armenian inscribed rugs from his personal collection.
The showing coincides with the 102nd anniversary of the date widely acknowledged as the beginning of the Armenian genocide, April 24, 1915. Armenians worldwide commemorate that date in honor of the intelligentsia they lost; the 1.5 million Armenians that were killed during the genocide and the thousands of Armenians that were forcibly deported from their homeland.
