Where: Minasian Rug Company - 1244 Chicago Avenue, Evanston, IL
Who: All friends of Minasian & Urban Gateways welcome!

Come discover the Hidden Treasures of Minasian, and help start Urban Gateways' newest arts education initiative!

Join us for an amazing night of discovery, where we reveal a treasure trove of incomparable Oriental rugs hidden from public view for over half a century. If you love the artistry and history of these unique works of art, this event is not to be missed, with some rugs valued at over $1,000,000. Special guest speakers and rug historians will provide the details of each rug exhibited.

We'll also announce the latest initiative of Urban Gateways and Minasian Rugs to bring Chicago students an understanding of the history, art, and design of rugs together with an exploration of the cultures, lives and religions of those who make the rugs in Afghanistan, India, Persia and more.
