US Secretary of State Extends her Gratitude to the Cafesjian Center for the Arts

August 10, 2010
The US Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton in a letter to the Director of Administration and the Acting Executive Director of the Cafesjian Center for the Arts Vahagn Marabyan thanked the Center for hosting her meeting with Armenian civil society leaders.

“The center is a magnificent landmark and a wonderful symbol of Armenian-American cooperation. Our tour of the Cafesjian sculpture garden and the Chihuly gallery was one of the highlights of my visit to Yerevan”, the letter of Secretary Clinton said.

US Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton visited the Cafesjian Center for the Arts on July 5th, 2010.  In her honor, a glass sculpture by Sidney Hutter was placed on exhibit – similar to the one by the same artist, added to the White House Craft Collection in 1993.  The sculpture, known as the “White House Vase”, is now in the William J. Clinton Presidential Library.

Secretary Clinton was delighted to see the Hutter sculpture from the Cafesjian Collection and commented to Mr. Marabyan on the wonderful exhibition space and how proud the Center must be for what it achieved.

The Sidney Hutter sculpture remains on exhibit at the Cafesjian Center for the Arts and can be viewed in Gallery One at the Cafesjian Center for the Arts in Yerevan through August.

Following a tour of the Cafesjian Sculpture Garden and Gallery One, Mrs. Clinton met with the representatives of the civil society at the Khanjyan Gallery.
