The Hidden Treasures of Minasian
March 7, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Minasian Rug Company
Join us at Minasian Rug Company for an amazing night of discovery; Minasian will reveal a treasure trove of Oriental rugs, some hidden from public view for over half a century.
The event will also showcase custom rugs designed through World Weavers, an Urban Gateways visual arts and textile design program supported by Minasian. Sales and donations from this event will benefit World Weavers, which explores the history and artistry of rugmaking from Afghanistan, India, and Persia with Chicago students.
This event is free to Urban Gateways friends and supporters, but space is limited, so please RSVP at the link below! Food & drink are included.
