“Recollections of Havana”

The Russian Cultural Center’s latest exhibit, “Recollection of Havana: The Art of Vladimir Frumin, is a collection of photographs of the Cuban capital by St. Petersburg-born Frumin. “I saw historical layers of Havana: layers of a flourishing and fashionable city,” he’s said. “And on top of it was another set of layers of today’s Havana: extreme colors and textures; city falling into decay; foreign visitors strolling through spectacularly dilapidated streets, snapping photographs of the city’s rotting grandeur.” 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Mondays through Fridays, and 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturdays. Through July 12. 2337 Bissonnet. For information, call 713-395-3301 or visit www.ourtx.org. Free.
Mondays-Saturdays. Starts: May 18. Continues through July 11, 2009
