“Bearing Witness to the Lost History of an Armenian Family through the Lens of the Dildilian Brothers”

This will be on display in the Lyman Center Lobby Gallery at Southern Connecticut State University from Sept. 10 to Oct. 18.  The images, from SCSU Philosophy Professor Armen Marsoobian’s extraordinary family collection, tell the story of his family against the backdrop of events that included a war that ravaged the world and a collapsing empire. 

At the exhibition’s opening reception on Sept. 10, from 5-8 p.m., Professor Marsoobian will talk about the exhibit, and SCSU President Mary A. Papazian will present the SCSU President’s Medal to special guest Ruben Mirzakhanyan, rector of Armenian State Pedagogical University after Khachatur Abovyan, in recognition of his commitment to enhancing the quality of education in Armenia by establishing international exchange partnerships with Southern and other institutions in Europe and beyond.
