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.
The Russian Cultural Center is the epitome of excellence in both sharing and personally experiencing the beauty of the Russian Culture. The events which are given,such as the films and concerts and art openings are refreshing and full of lively spirited coversation with extremely interesting intellectual patrons afterwards at the well attended receptions. Everyone always leaves with a song in their heart-all uplifiting. Dr. Nancy Anderson
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.
I volunteered to help out the organizers to coordinate certain photo and art exhibitions, film screenings and concerts. I met wonderful, interesting artists and helped to outreach to American audiences in the city.
My experiences with the Russian Cultural Center have been deeply enriching, both culturally and spiritually. Their cultural programs are invaluable in exposing the local community to the great contributions from Russia to the world in the fields of music, literature, art and science. The Russian Cultural Center is also an inexhaustable source of aid and comfort for numerous needy families newly immigrating to the United States. My firm strongly supports the Russian Cultural Center in these endeavors through financial assistance and providing pro bono legal services to needy families. I can truly say without reservation or hesitation that Houston is a better place because of the Russian Cultural Center's efforts.
The cultural events are great. They have documentary film screenings, art exhibitions, and musical concerts. They are interesting and well organized.
