Central House of Artists (TsDKh; Tsentralny Dom Khudozhnikov)
Central House of Artists (TsDKh; Tsentralny Dom Khudozhnikov) Review
The street entrance of this huge, modern building leads to the exhibit halls of the Artists' Union, where members display their work on three floors. This is a great place to find a sketch or watercolor to take home with you. There's also a tiny movie theater that shows old international cinema as well as a concert hall with pop and rock performances almost nightly. Massive exhibitions on everything from books to fur coats to architecture take over the building periodically, and some are worth checking out. The cavernous space also has room enough to house the modern branch of the Tretyakov Gallery. Next door is the Art Park, where contemporary sculpture and old statues of Soviet dignitaries stand side by side. It's a pleasant place for a stroll.
