FOXBORO, Mass. — “Yes We Can Recognize the Armenian Genocide” is the message on the 2010 Armenian Genocide Commemorative Billboard sponsored by Peace of Art Inc. now on digital display here.
The billboard, owned by Carroll Advertising, is located 1/4 mile south of the main entrance to Gillette Stadium and Patriot Place.
“Yes We Can” was the slogan of the 2008 US presidential campaign, which was shared with the rest of the world. It promised that changes were on the way, and for American Armenians, it was a message of hope for the recognition of the Armenian Genocide by the US government.
The Armenian Genocide Commemorative Billboards “has given me the opportunity not only to proclaim the reality of the genocide of the Armenian people, as an undeniable historical event, that must be recognized, but also to champion the universal ideas of peace, liberty and justice.” Said Daniel
Varoujan Hejinian, the president of Peace of Art, Inc., who, since 1996 has been sponsoring the Armenian Genocide Commemorative Billboards in Watertown, Mass. This year, Peace of Art, Inc., is taking this message to other communities.
The collection of billboards will be on display at the Armenian Library and Museum of America, in Watertown, from March 28 to May 2, as part of Hejinian’s exhibit, “A Journey Through the Years.”
