Los Angeles City Councilman Paul Krekorian said Tuesday his office
is accepting submissions for an art contest commemorating the 100th
anniversary of the Armenian genocide.
The contest "is a way to honor the history of the genocide and to
highlight the promise of our future," Krekorian said.
"I hope artists and students who care about human rights will
participate and help commemorate the Armenian people's resilience,"
An estimated 1.5 million to 2 million Armenians were killed during
the Armenian genocide, which occurred from 1915 and 1923, in an area
now known as Turkey, Krekorian's office said.
Submissions are due Feb. 15. The winning artwork will be displayed
on a city bus for one month.
Drawings, paintings, digital art and photography are eligible, but
not sculptures or large format work, Krekorian said.
Artwork can be mailed to Krekorian's office at 200 N. Spring
St., Room 435, Los Angeles, CA 90012; or emailed to
