From September 20th, 2018, to January 13, 2019, my products were available to purchase in the gift shop of one of thee most prestigious museums in the world, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York!
Here is their write-up about me:
“The Met Store has stocked a range of gifts featuring vibrant designs by California-based illustrator Arpi Krikorian. Krikorian creates a singular visual world that draws on her training as a children’s animator as well as her proud heritage. With oversize eyes, intricately drawn costumes, and evocative names, her whimsically drawn characters bring Armenian folk characters and traditions to life. Her designs appear on notecards, totes, and even espresso cups, all for sale at the exhibition store.”
