The City of West Hollywood through its Russian Advisory Board invited LarkGallery to take part in the 16th Annual Russian Arts and Culture Festival. The grand event will take place on Sunday, May 21, 2017 and will give an opportunity to artists to introduce their talents to thousands of people as part of the Russian Arts and Culture Month.
Russian Culture Month celebrates and explores many aspects of Russian arts brought to the US from the various regions of the former Soviet Union. LarkGallery is seeking artists, sculpures and proposals for installations that highlight this heritage, its history, and culture.
Artists from other countries and the US are welcome to submit their art, if they feel that their art is influenced by Russian Avantgarde Art or is inspired by the Russian heritage, its history or culture.
