Looks a bit Soviet in style, but probably not old enough... is it in Russia?

Nope.  USA.
Hint:  It's near the public entrance of an art museum.

Nope.
Another hint:  It's in a medium-sized midwestern city.

My google-foo was stronger than EhJayArr's but I didnt want to answer because my net is limited this month, which means I cant search appropriate pics to take the next go...

But seeing as how still nobody has answered - It appears to be the Dayton Art Institute, Ohio.

With that answer, I'm going to say somewhere in Germany. Berlin or Dresden?

Nope. Sorry, it wasn't a clue, I just like saying "nein."

Here's a clue: 100% of the people who see that picture in this thread are aware of the place where that building is located.

Nope, and nope. The building served multiple functions before its ultimate demise, but none all that interesting.
