    Description
    In 1991 the “Association of Friends of Persian Culture” was established under the auspices of the National Spiritual Assembly of the Baha’is of the United States to promote Persian arts and culture. The goals of the Association are as follows:

    · To help Baha’is of Iranian descent to appreciate and preserve their cultural heritage

    · To encourage Baha’i youth and children of Iranian descent to familiarize themselves with, and gain a deeper appreciation of Persian arts and culture.

    · To help English speaking friends and relatives of Baha’is of Iranian descent, as well as the general public, to familiarize themselves with, and gain an appreciation of Persian arts and culture.

    · To promote systematic and comprehensive study of Persian arts and culture

    Mark Edward Harris

    Illustrated Talk on New Book: "Inside Iran"



    The Islamic Republic of Iran is at the center of world attention politically, socially, and culturally - but it remains largely a cipher to the West.



    Award-winning photographer Mark Edward Harris traveled throughout Iran to produce a fascinating view of a society of juxtapositions - ancient and modern, commercial and spiritual, serene and intense, political and personal.



    "Inside Iran" is the first contemporary photographic look at a country whose future is likely to influence our own.



    Harris will offer a narrated presentation of images from this new book. The evening program will be held in the museum auditorium.



    The program is co-sponsored by Asia Society Southern California.



    Books will be available for purchase and signing. Light refreshments. Reservations advised, 626.449.2742, ext. 20.



    Authors on Asia programs are included in museum admission, $7 general, $5 students and seniors, free for members of Pacific Asia Museum and Asia Society Southern California and includes admission to museum galleries until program begins at 7:30pm.



    Pacific Asia Museum is located at 46 N. Los Robles Ave., Pasadena, CA 91101.
