The 100 Year Journey
A commemorative art installation for the centennial of the Armenian Genocide.
“If You are against Genocide, you are for Peace”
Artworks by a descendant of genocide who returns to his ancestral land 100 years after the tragedy.
“The 100 Year Journey is not only an exploration and celebration of a peoples’ proud ancient and spiritual history, it is a dialogue of peace. I imagine that this is what my ancestors wanted most during their darkest hour. Therefore I think it is our responsibility today to honor the past by contributing to a peaceful tomorrow. If you are against genocide then you are for peace.” – Gregory Beylerian
