About the Russian Cultural Center

The Russian Cultural Center “Our Texas” was founded in 2003 to provide a place for Russian artists, actors, photographers, musicians, and performers to promote their work.

Since then, RCC has grown from a personal dream of its founder, Sophia Grinblat, into a team of board members dedicated to fostering and facilitating a cross-cultural exchange through diverse cultural contributions.

In 2007, RCC opened their current venue as a destination for local art lovers, exhibition space, workshop classroom, concert hall, and film screening site.
