Art Center

History of the House

The House, in which the «Art-Center» is situated now, was built in the early XX century. At that time the house was designated for military music band rehearsals and non-combatant learning sessions. After the Revolution it was the club for officers and soldiers, and later the sport school. In the early 90-s fire destroyed all of the roof and wooden structures of the house. In 2009, in order to preserve the architectural masterpiece from further destruction, the «SAMARA-CENTER» company had the interior of the house cleaned out from bushes and garbage, and had the temporary roof installed to protect the building from rain- and snowfalls, and to preserve the brickwork and decorative features.

The same year the «Art-Center» was opened in this house.

The «SAMARA-CENTER» company manages the «Art-Center».

The center of contemporary art

Today the «Art-Center» is the new place for developing contemporary art and culture in Samara.

Starting from 2009 the «Art-Center» has become the place of regular art exhibitions, workshops, movie shows and parties. The «Art-Center» is the universal space, where artists and managers from all over the globe can carry out their projects. The «Art-Center» is in active collaboration with galleries and cultural institutions from Samara, St.Petersburg and Moscow.
