“According to YSU Cultural Center’s policy, this year we are also greeting the spring with a cultural event. This event has not been organized randomly. Ahead of the 100th anniversary of YSU, we are launching a series of events that feature prominent lecturers. Tatevik Melkonyan is also a graduate of our university, a physicist by profession,” - said Karine Davtyan, YSU Cultural Center Director at the beginning of the opening ceremony.
“Through my work I want to present the rich heritage created by our ancestors, to instill love among them towards the wonderful nature of our motherland, thus enabling them to preserve this precious wealth,” - says Tatevik Melkonyan, who has over 100,000 works.
The artistic part of the opening ceremony was provided by YSU Cultural Center students with song and dance performances.
By the way, Tatevik Melkonian’s first personal exhibition took place in 2008 in Etchmiadzin. The works of the photographer are constantly published in different magazines, books, as well as in “Christian Armenia” and “Shoghakn Araratyan” newspapers and on the official website of the Ararat Diocese.
