Armenian General Benevolent Union (AGBU) is the largest global Armenian organization with 400,000 followers worldwide. Emerging Artists showcases six West Coast artists within a wide range of visual mediums.
AGBU has a lengthy history of charitable initiatives and this year the San Francisco chapter has chosen to help fund a sustainable farming initiative in a volatile region of Armenia with the proceeds from this exhibition. This project will build a set of greenhouses in an area susceptible to hail storms and limited farming seasons. By allowing farmers to work their land for longer periods, the project attempts to reverse the detrimental effect of emigration and depopulation in Armenia.
