Preserving the Past, Building the Future: the Role of Museums in a Changing World
Thursday, June 2, 2016 @ 7:00 pm
Representatives from Los Angeles area museums examine the unique challenges they face in their cultural, social, and political roles as venues for historical preservation and modern-day innovated practices.
The program is part of a series programs taking place in conjunction with the “Armenia: An Open Wound” exhibition.
Presented by the City of Glendale and the Library, Arts & Culture Department in partnership with the Armenian American Museum and curated by the Museo Memoria y Tolerancia in Mexico City, “Armenia: An Open Wound” illustrates early Armenian culture on their ancestral lands and provides insight into the events which led to the 1915 Armenian Genocide. The exhibition highlights the unique contributions of the international Armenian diaspora with a focus on survivors who settled in Mexico during the early 20th century.
The exhibit will be on view at the Brand Library Art Galleries between April 16 and June 11, 2016 during the library’s regular hours: Tuesday and Thursday 12-8pm, Wednesday 12-6pm, and Friday and Saturday, 10am-5pm. Brand Library & Art Center is located at 1601 West Mountain Street, Glendale, California, 91201. All events at Brand Library & Art Center are free and open to the public.
