From Russia with love

If you're interested in Russia or Russian culture, the Museum of Russian Icons in Clinton, MA has a new exhibit called MAPS: Pathways to Russia, showing February 28 through May 26, 2012. There's so many wonderful pieces of Russian culture at this small museum that has it's own modest little Russian Tea Room for refreshments. The museum regularly has traditional Russian music concerts (think balalaika!), Russian dancing, Russian language lectures, icon studies, and other interesting workshops, such as the upcoming one on pysanky—the intricate art of making Ukranian Easter eggs. This museum is a Russian gem and worth the drive to find it.
