The exhibit runs through Oct. 11 before moving on to Watertown, Mass.
After touring the museum and dropping off the Armenian-themed cartoons that we're lending to the exhibition, we continued on to Windham, N.Y., about 30 miles deeper into the Catskill Mountains.
Windham is a quaint little ski town, mostly quiet this time of year, which makes it perfect for weekend getaways for high-powered New Yorkers like our daughter Mandy.
There's only one main street through town, a short stretch of shops that hardly ever changes -- except for the surprise we spotted in the above photo.
The Armenian flag fluttering over Route 23 is one of several banners outside a new Greek-owned grocery store. (Of course, there's a Greek flag, too.)
Mandy had scouted this place on a previous visit, but the store had just opened and had few items. She wasn't hoping for much.
But this time, we found a surprisingly substantial array of specialty ingredients for cooking and baking, including mahlab (ground cherry pits). Mandy scooped up an armful of goodies and promised to be back soon.
I thought this was pretty cool: The flag meant to attract curious Armenians did just that, and our curiosity was rewarded. Better still, Mandy now has a place to shop for our kind of groceries in a town where there isn't even a regular supermarket.
