Please join The National Cambodian Heritage Museum & Memorial for an evening of celebration as we gather to mingle and support cultural and artistic preservation.
We are honored to welcome guest speaker and artist, Yary Livan. Mr. Livan is one of perhaps only three Cambodian master ceramists to have survived the 1975 Khmer Rouge genocide. After escaping the Khmer Rouge, Livan spent many years in various refugee camps before finally making his way to the United States in 2001. He shares his artistic knowledge with the next generation through classes and apprenticeships, even building a traditional Cambodian wood-burning kiln using space provided by the Lowell National Historic Park in a partnership with Middlesex Community College. In 2015, Mr. Livan was named a NEA National Heritage Fellow. For more information on Yary Livan:
Tickets are $35. It will include drinks and appetizers,traditional Cambodian music / song / dance performances, and our special guest speaker Yary Livan.
