The golden jubilee celebrations on all days, except Mondays, will be from 11 am-7 pm, and on Fridays from 4-8 pm.
The featured works by 55 renowned artists include painter, graphic designer, author and film critic Aydin Aghdashloo, 76; painter, sculptor, art collector and curator Fereydoun Ave, 71; sculptor, painter and author Hannibal Alkhas (1930-2010); modern sculptor Jazeh Tabatabai (1930-2007); sculptor, painter, scholar and art collector Parviz Tanavoli, 79; sculptor Esmail Tavakoli (1923-1994); caricaturist Kambiz Derambakhsh, 75; and painter, architect and photographer Garnik Der Hagopian.
