The AGBU Armenian Virtual College, in collaboration with the Ministry of Education and Science of Armenia and the Martiros Saryan house-museum organized a series of live Facebook events from the museum. Art critic and house-museum director Ruzan Saryan and chief curator Sophie Saryan guided the viewers on a virtual tour, unveiling the secrets of Saryanâ€™s artworks and sharing some of the personal stories behind his paintings.
The events are part of â€śMy Saryanâ€ť the 9th Pan-Armenian childrenâ€™s painting festival-competition that will take place in several stages throughout the year. AVC suggested to hold thematic live events from the museum in order to reach a wider audience and better acquaint the participants of the competition with Saryanâ€™s art. The Ministry and the museum staff fully supported the initiative which was welcomed with high interest and received positive feedback from online viewers.
â€śWe are thankful to the AGBU Armenian Virtual College and Martiros Saryan house-museum for the collaboration and for bringing the idea of the event to life.â€ť -Department of Diaspora, RA Ministry of Education and Science
