What:

Minasian invites guests to witness the magic of the unfurling ceremony as Minasian reveals rugs that have been hidden for decades, each worth $500,000 and up. This is the first of four Minasian events benefiting Urban Gateways arts education programs.

Urban Gateways will also be partnering with Minasian to implement a classroom education program in Chicago schools.

The Urban Gateways/Minasian Residency program focuses on engaging middle school students on the art of textiles through the communal process of weaving and rug-making (design and production).

Urban Gateways teaching artists and students will explore the historical, cultural and communal aspects of weaving, while creating their own designs for the production of Minasian rugs.
