Update our air conditioning

donate now

Dear Friends,

Thank you for your support of the Russian Cultural Center “Our Texas” and your continued attendance at our events. We hope that you enjoy our unique art evenings, musical concerts and film screenings.

We strive to improve our venue to make it the state-of-the-art facility. Last year, thanks to tremendous support from the community, we were able to complete two huge projects: first, we replaced all of our gallery lighting second, we beautified our exterior walls with two eye-catching murals.

Our next goal is to improve the building’s air conditioning system. We dream of being able to invite guests to our movie screenings, musical evenings and concerts year-round and to create a more comfortable environment for the students of our Russian language classes—both children and adults.

Please help us to achieve this goal!

Всеми любимый дуэт братьев Мищуков привозит в США новую программу “Юбилейная”.

Вадиму и Валерию повезло нащупать ту грань, когда песни, написанные для себя, становятся близкими и нужными людям совершенно незнакомым и разным.” – А.Афанасьев

писатель, историк литературы, один из самых ярких интеллектуалов поколения,

Впервые в Хьюстоне!

Творческий вечер Дмитрия Быкова – это всегда непредсказуемое, захватывающее действо, переполненное его экстатической харизмой.

Дмитрий Быков необычайно интересен на сцене, что бы он ни делал. Чтение собственных стихов, или прозы, ответы на вопросы из зала, или остроумнейшие комментарии на внезапно пришедшую в голову мысль – все это захватывает его зрителя, как захватывают его читателя написанные им книги.
