Take a virtual trip through the heart of Russia in this visual presentation by Carol Rudie, lead docent and coordinator of outreach education at the Russian Museum of Art--and a highly sought out OLLI teacher. Several MCC members who have traveled with Rudie and have taken her OLLI classes rave about her knowledge and presentations. In this program, Moscow and St. Petersburg act as bookends to an exploration of the circle of ancient towns that predate the unification of the country under the tsars. Tiptoe through distinctive churches, follow rivers through forests to rustic villages, appreciate the art and architecture that makes this culture distinctive. Rudie has a PhD that includes a minor in Art History.
