Armenian American Museum Co-Chairs Discuss Museum Plans with Glendale City Officials

On Tuesday, November 10, 2015, members of the Armenian American Museum initiated discussions with the City of Glendale on the terms of a Ground Lease Agreement for a 1.7 acre property adjacent to the Glendale Civic Auditorium. Co-Chairs, H.E. Archbishop Moushegh Mardirossian, Prelate, and H.E. Archbishop Hovnan Derderian, Primate, and Museum Project Development Committee Chairman Berdj Karapetian participated in the meeting that was held with Glendale Mayor Ara Najarian and City Manager Scott Ochoa.

The Prelate expressed gratitude to Mayor Ara Najarian and City Council members for their encouragement and guidance on developing a museum that will empower individuals to embrace cultural diversity and speak out against prejudice. “We are seeing a strong interest for a museum that will promote understanding and appreciation of America’s ethnic and cultural diversity by sharing the Armenian American experience,” stated Mr. Berdj Karapetian.

The Armenian American Museum will soon launch its presence on social media outlets and will start scheduling presentations to community organizations.
