As an American student interested in Russian culture I was surprised and excited to discover that Houston even had an organization like the RCC! The programs they support and organize are interesting, well-thought out, and really accessible to anyone interested in Russian culture. The artwork they showcase is truly excellent--worthy of a visit!--and not available anywhere else in Houston. Stop in and take a look--everyone at the gallery is really friendly and happy to talk and answer questions.
I really like the Russian Cultural Center. I am able to watch Russian movies, listen to good Russian music and see Russian Art. Being from Russia this gives me a good experience. I am part of the Russian community and have a great time. Please support the Russian Cultural Center and help bridge the gap between Russian and American Cultures and people.
Russian Cultural Center is an organization in Houston, TX which sponsors various artistic talents interesting to the Russian community in Texas. As a non-Russian, I have greatly enjoyed my visits to the center to learn some of the ways that Russians appreciate arts differently from Americans. I have gone to a few exhibitions of painting and photography and seen some examples of other artistic styles, although I have not been able to visit any of the musical or film events. It is always a pleasant atmosphere and I visit with both Russian and American friends.
I have good time with art classes and friendly atmosphere in Russian Cultural Center. Teather is very qualified and only tell apprishiations for peaple working for that service provide us with so good skills. Also can visit and see Russian movies and music concerts.
My name is Irina Jacobson, I am a volunteer with AdvitaUSA fund. Sofia and staff of Russian Cultural Center are very receptive to our needs and help us to spread the word about Russian kids undergoing cancer treatments within Houston Russian community. Our Texas published an article about AdvitaUSA in July 09 and is planning to publish a story about a 7 year old boy with neuroblastoma.
Excellent - very informative and interesting programs, movies, art shows and other cultural events. Extremely important for the Russian community of Houston and others who are interested in Russian language and history. Highly recommend.
The Russian Cultural Center (RCC) is a well-administered and vibrant non-profit with the unique role of providing both Russian-speaking and non Russian-speaking Houstonians with a large number of intelligent, useful and varied programs. As a founding member of this young organization, I have marveled at the growth and direction of RCC and its contributions to the cultural and intellectual enrichment of children and adults, Russian and non-Russian, briefly, its contribution to Houston as a go-to destination for quality of life unparalled in our region. One would need to travel to New York or Washington DC to access the quality and variety of programs provided by RCC
I come to see great perfomances and films dedicated to Russian musical culture, cinematography, and other artistic ventures. These events are well-organized, have a comforting personalized atmosphere, and occur on regular basis. Outstanding pianists and vocalists perform at RCC "Our Texas" sharing the best pieces of Russian cultural heritage. I am recommending RCC to everyone I know.
