Because the Anthropology/ Armenian Museum has such limited space (2 rooms, each 15x8), student classes cannot experience the educational experience with their classmates. One group is delegated to a classroom to await their turn to visit the Museum. We are grateful to Queens College who has hosted the Museum since 2003. We are inviting our members and friends of the Museum to help us to explore other venues to house the Anthropology Room well as the Armenian Room. The Board of Trustees is having conversations with the Queens College administration to resolve the situation. The Museum is the invited guest of the College, but is self-supporting through the generosity of Museum membership. We appeal to our supporters for suggestions to finding a larger venue. Among our friends that are helping us in the search are; His Grace, Bishop Anoushavan Tanelian, the Vicar General, and Archbishop Oshagan Choloyan of the Eastern Prelacy of the Armenian Apostolic Church. Bishop Tanelian asked His Eminence, Khajag Barsamian, Primate of the Diocese of the Armenian Church of America to explore sites on our behalf. NYC Councilman Barry Grodenchik is also assisting in this search. Attorneys, Morton Alpert, Denise Darmanian and Ruben Stepanian are consulting with Executive Director Marge Kyrkostas to find a new venue for the Museum. The collection is very valuable, in view of the fact that many donate artifacts are irreplaceable. Our library books alone are a treasure. Many of our fossil ancestors have been found in different countries from all over the world, Greece, Italy, India, Kenya, China, Czech Republic, etc.

  Because our” Remember Me With Music” concert was so welcomed by our audience last year, the Board of Trustees of the Anthropology/Armenian Museum have planned to celebrate once again, the birthday of Mark Kyrkostas, composer/ pianist at his home, where he grew up. On Friday, March 9, 2018, pianist, Ivy Adrianwill perform Kyrkostas’ Ellis Island”, his signature piece. Included in the program are songs by Gershwin, Porter and Mercer. Songs will be performed by the star of the Broadway production of Beauty & the Beast, Michelle Mallardi. Joining Mallardi in song will be Ani O’Hanlon (Mark’s niece) who will sing the famous play, “Generations”. She will also treat us to more popular dance routines. Cosmo Mallardi, Kyrkostas’ bass player will accompany Ivy. Stand up comedian Nick Whitman is really very funny. A buffet dinner will be served promptly at 6:30 pm, followed by the performances. Because space is limited, order you tickets early to avoid disappointment. Tickets are 2 for $50 or $30 each.  
  Call 718- 428 5650 for tickets.  
  Don’t miss out on this fun evening with friends.
