Armenia!

Landmark Exhibition at The Met
to Focus on Medieval Armenia 

Exhibition Dates:  September 22, 2018–January 13, 2019

Opening September 22 at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Armenia! explores the arts and culture of the Armenians from their conversion to Christianity in the early fourth century through their leading role on international trade routes in the 17th century. The exhibition emphasizes how Armenians developed a distinctive national identity in their homeland at the base of Mt. Ararat (widely accepted as the resting place of Noah’s Ark) and how they maintained and transformed their traditions as their communities expanded across the globe.
