Speaker Series: Abraham’s Metal Gifts Made with Love

July 26, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Abraham’s son Robert is on a mission to promote the life and artwork of his father. Join us this July 26th, where Robert will speak on his father’s life and art! This one-of-a-kind experience is something you don’t want to miss!

Abraham Megerdichian, 1923-1983, worked as a machinist in Massachusetts from the time he graduated from high school in 1942 until his passing at the age of 59. Aside from being a machinist he was a metal artist. From the 1950s on Abraham created numerous utilitarian and then artistic metal objects, nearly all as gifts for family. For decades most of the objects sat in storage. Since 2014 Abraham’s metal artwork has been exhibited at numerous museums.

Robert has been featured in the Boston Globe, on WCVB TV Chronicle, and Our American Stories on radio.
