Oregon Culture Nights: Persian Calligraphy with Marjan Anvari

Thursday, August 25 at 6:00pm

Museum of Natural and Cultural History, Courtyard
1680 E 15th Avenue, Eugene, OR

Join us for a celebration of Oregon's living traditions, featuring performances and demonstrations by master artists from around the Willamette Valley. Bring your lawn chairs and enjoy this outdoor program connecting across our collective heritages.
 
Marjan Anvari is a master artist and art conservator of tazhib, a traditional Persian form of gold illumination dating back to the 3rd Century. Mathematically precise and aesthetically ornate, tazhib, along with calligraphy and miniature, is foundational to Iranian architecture, handcrafts, rugs, silverwares, and manuscripts.​ Since founding Negahreh Art+ Design in 2014, Anvari was a 2016 Apprenticeship awardee, and 2022 Traditional Arts Recovery Program awardee.
