A memorial commemorating Armenian Genocide victims will be placed
in Pasadena.

It is expected to be by April 24, 2015, the 100th anniversary of the
Armenian Genocide, Los Angeles Times reported.

The winning design for a public memorial was announced on Tuesday. A
student at the Art Center College of Design Catherine Menard presented
her concept for consideration of the committee dealing with the
memorial.

~SAt first I felt unworthy -- who am I to respond to such loss?~T
she said in a statement.

~SBut art lends itself to the deepest, darkest parts of human
experience. It can create sympathy, empathy, understanding. I wanted
to pair this horror with something uplifting and beautiful, to create
a way to remember. I developed three different ideas and settled on
the one that I felt most terrified and most moved by,~T Los Angeles
Times quotes Menard.
