President Armen Sarkissian expressed his condolences to Zaven Sargsyan's family and relatives

On the death of Zaven Sargsyan, the founder and longtime director of the Parajanov Museum, President of the Republic Armen Sarkissian sent condolences to his family and relatives.

"Zaven Sargsyan was a man of art by nature. Photography took him directly to the world of art, where he was fortunate enough to become close to the world-famous Parajanov, immortalizing the unique moments of the genius' life and activities. Today, the Sergei Parajanov Museum is one of the most visited cultural centres in Yerevan, one of the key links to popularize Armenian culture and Parajanov's diverse heritage. And this is due to the efforts and devotion of both: the talented director and the tireless guardian of his heritage, Zaven Sargsyan,” is said in the President's message of condolences.
