Russian Arts and Culture Month has become an integral part of the Russian speaking community and the entire City of West Hollywood. The cultural and creative identity of the Russian speaking community is embodied in its visual arts, history, and language. The cultural pride is derived from sharing its values, beliefs, identity, and self-expression with one another and the Southern California community as a whole. Our Russian speaking community represents at least 15% of our city’s population and they are an important factor in our business and economic growth.
